What a spectacular sight!
As Hurricane Arthur barrels it's way up the East Coast, the nation's largest city was hit with a remarkable display of lightning and thunder.
Watch the Incredible Footage
One World Trade Center—the tallest skyscraper in America—took a direct hit.
"NYC thunderstorms aren't kidding around. And yes, I actually took this!!" went one Twitter post.
Another posted a picture with the simple message: "Amazing"
