On November 27, I was walking home after dark. Upon turning a corner off a side street on onto Sixth Avenue, I encountered an incredible laser rainbow reaching into the sky. It was coming from the west, not far from where I was going, so I walked in its direction, shooting photos and being stopped by strangers asking if knew what it was. I did not. The lights led me to The Standard hotel, so I learned where they originated, but not their purpose. An internet search that night didn’t reveal anything.
