Dîner en Blanc Shines Again in New York (Photo Gallery)

As the sun was setting, about 5,000 people gathered at the Nelson A. Rockefeller Park in Battery Park City, all dressed in white for a pop-up dinner on Aug. 25, 2014. Originally launched in France in 1988, the viral event Dîner en Blanc returned to New York for its 4th edition. The event’s location is kept secret until the last minute, when revelers, all dressed elegantly in white, converge from different parts of the city, with picnic ware and fare, and tables and chairs, at their appointed spot.
