New York City Snow Day

new-york-city-snow-day-1Well, it’s fair to say that I LOVE a New York City snow day! We’ve already had three snow storms this winter in New York City. I shared a round up of my favorite Christmas snowy scenes in the city at the end of last year, and also a look at one of my snow day outfits, too. This weekend’s snowfall wasn’t as heavy as last year’s historic snow storm in New York City, but it was still a fair amount – about 4-5″. I’ve rounded up some of the New York City snow day scenes that caught my eye and made me smile this weekend, after the jump!

new-york-city-snow-day-2Greenwich village sure does look charming under a blanket of fresh, powdery snow. Well, let’s get real, it looks charming any day but the snow is a little added bonus!new-york-city-snow-day-3I posted this to my Instagram Story but I liked it so much I wanted to include it here too. I just managed to get grab my phone in time to capture the shot before the cab went out of frame. I love how the disappearing cab gives a feeling of NYC’s space. Yes, even a New York City snow day is still fast-paced!new-york-city-snow-day-4Confession: I risked life and limb (!) to run across snow and ice like a crazy person to capture this shot. I noticed the woman with the red umbrella in the distance and knew it would look great in the contrast against the white snow. It was worth it – I love this photograph!new-york-city-snow-day-5There’s nothing more joyful that seeing a group of children hurtling down a snow-laden hill in Central Park. I wish I could have had a go, TBH!new-york-city-snow-day-6Apart from the first image and the one of the woman with the red umbrella, I took these pictures on my iPhone (the other two I took on my Canon 5D). It kinda blows my mind how powerful the iPhone camera is these days.new-york-city-snow-day-7Snow-capped trees make New York City feel more like Narnia. So beautiful! The final shot (below) has a dashing-through-the-snow-to-get-home feeling to it, don’t you think? Do you like snow?

    Blown away! Such lovely photos. I was able to experience Jonas last year in NJ but I have yet to experience a snowstorm in NYC and that would be a dream. I love this series!

    I’ll be honest, I’m not a big fan of Snow. To be fair, I’ve always lived in a place that gets a lot of it (Born and raised in Montreal and now living in the Capital city of Canada, Ottawa). This winter we’ve already had a lot of snow storms (and not the pretty kind in your pictures). The snow banks in my street are close to 6 feet tall. I mean when you get yourself in a nice park or forest setting it takes great pictures but the reality of it is, a lot of shoveling and a lot of cursing when the snow plow clears your street after you’ve shoveled your laneway and dumps half the snow bank onto your property (true story….happened last week). We’re about 2 months into winter here and there’s about 3 months to go still and I am officially done with snow! But again, you guys don’t get nearly as much snow as we do and NYC is a bit of a magical city to begin with so your pictures almost make me feel good about snow…….almost ;p
