Monday’s heavy thunderstorm swept through New York City and caused downpours and extremely strong winds, but after the storm, a beautiful rainbow cheered everyone up.

Rainbow lovers quickly reached for their cameras and smartphones to document the beautiful sight. Some were able to spot the rare double rainbow from their location.


Wonderful rainbow today after the storm. Perfect preface to the end of the Pride month and the upcoming parade!

An Instagram user in Sunnyside, Queens, was able to capture the rainbow above a Cellino & Barnes billboard, which quickly makes you want to recite the catchy jingle from their commercial. Perhaps the rainbow is a sign that they will settle their differences and continue to work together.
