New York City and Central Park in the snow

 

Central Park
Christmas is drawing closer, so it is time for me to draft a few wintery posts accompanied with funky Jazz music :)
I am currently sorting out my hard discs and editing all the photos that are worthy of sharing.

This set of photos is from 2006, when I was working for a fashion company in New York.
One weekend it started snowing over night and it didn’t stop for for the rest of the day. I had never experienced New York in the snow, so it was very impressive.
That particular weekend I did not plan on going anywhere, but seeing the whole city covered in snow made me wanna go to Central Park to make some pictures.

I remember the abundance of snow making it very difficult and slow getting to the park. When I got back home after a few hours I was drenched, freezing and in need of a hot shower :D
I did get a lot of photos out of my trip, so it was all worth it.

Here are a few pictures of the streets:

NY sidewalkPlants had to be uncovered.
NewYork BenchesBenches rendered unusable.
Traffic LightMessy road situations.

The following week people still had trouble getting anywhere, because street cleaning services were struggling to keep up with the snow. And as soon as it stopped snowing, there were large puddles of mud everywhere; people couldn’t get to work without getting their feet and trousers wet :P Look here:
