One of the best things about living in New York -- and I imagine it's the same in every big city -- is that you never know what's around the corner.
There could, for example, be a playground of giant, muti-colored, striped balloons.
Paul and I were just steps from the entrance to the newest section of the High Line, a New York City park I'll be writing more about on this blog next week. But we stopped in our tracks when we came across Rainbow City.
I had never heard of it and knew even less. I gathered that it was sponsored by AOL, and found out a little more about it's history here.

It really didn't matter anyway. I was attracted to the bright colors like a moth to a flame. It felt like I was prancing around not just in any cartoon, but in anime.
Rainbow City was just one of those things you can't plan for but you can always count on in New York.
