We had quite a bit of snow in January in NYC. I was in the city when it was snowing, so I wandered around to a few areas to take some photos. It was not easy going as there was no plowing going on. It was also very quiet, despite all of the people out and about enjoying the snow (NY-ers don’t hide in their apartments during weather, they find odd ways to enjoy it. Exhibit A: here). I didn’t have a cover with me for the camera, so I kept it under my coat most of the time and called it quits when both the camera and myself got too cold. Here are some of the shots I got.
Empty street of snow.
Already piling up.
Flag in the snow.
Someone is a stubborn street vender.
Entering Madison Square Park. We aren’t alone here.
We may not be sitting any time soon.
That fence is half covered.
Heading towards the Flatiron.
Looking down Broadway at the Flatiron.
Anyone want to slide down the subway steps?
The snow is getting deeper in the street.
This bike is going nowhere.
Welcome to Union Square and no Farmers Market.
Sums up the day.
More benches you probably won’t sit in.
Snow filled fountain.
Walking along the paths.
Even the cops aren’t moving much.
Yeah, they’re not going anywhere.
Gotta love snowmen with ass cracks.
The snow gets heavier.
There’s some ice forming too.
I feel this encapsulates the day.
More path walkers.
Oh, and a dinosaur on skis.
Next week: Night time in Washington Square Park with some bubbles.
