Photo Essays: NYC in the Snow

As you may have heard, the Northeast got a little visit from Juno the “blizzard” on Monday. It wasn’t quite the disaster everyone was afraid of/secretly hoping for, but some areas did get hit with a decent amount. I took the opportunity yesterday to freeze my fingers and toes off in order to capture some of the wintery goodness in Central Park and around the Upper East Side. Read on for more pictures!

Normally I don’t like when people get in my pictures but I love how this woman’s red coat looks against all the white snow. A happy accident! 

Oh, that super modern Cooper Hewitt sign on the old, ornate Cooper Hewitt building…it’s too good. (It’s actually the former mansion of steel industrialist Andrew Carnegie, built in 1901). 

Whenever I walk by the Met I really do have to marvel at how lucky I am to live in this city. Within walking distance of the Met. Look at how beautiful that building is. Those pillars! It’s just wonderful. 

So confused as to who made all of these snowballs and how they’re all perfectly round.

  3. Maybe it was Buddy the Elf! I recall a scene from that movie where he makes all the snowballs!

  10. You’ve made it look lovely. Enough to almost make me forget the next-day reality of uncollected garbage, yellow snow and dog owners who seem to think that laws and manners no longer apply in the snow. Bravo for venturing out in the arctic chill.
