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 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? Have you ever experienced a New York City snow day?new-york-city-snow-day-8// Photography by Will Taylor

  1. Amazing that many of these were taken on your phone. Inspires me to take more pictures!

  2. Love the one of you!! And the woman with the red umbrella. Your eye for a shot is perfect! 🙂

  3. I love New York in the snow! It’s so positively dreamy. Also, I seriously need to upgrade my phone. I really can’t believe how powerful the new camera is! Your photos are incredible.

    New york city is among the beautiful city I would love to visit some day.. the pictures are amazing, guess you’re born for this. ooh how I wish we could experience a snow fall in Africa. yea, how about you throw us some NYC snow music feast pics ??? hope am not asking for much. keep up with the good works. I rate 5 star.

  5. 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!

  6. 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

  7. Those pics are awesome! 🙂 I would’ve run like crazy too with a sight like that! 🙂 Have a wonderful and happy snow time! 😉
