It’s Absolutely A Beautiful Day Out There. Or Is It?

Not all New Yorkers agreed when Chancellor Carmen Farina of New York City said that, “It’s absolutely a beautiful day out there.” The Chancellor made the comment in defiance sharp criticism over her and Mayor De Blasio’s decision to keep NYC Public Schools open during a snow storm which covered the city under a blanket of white snow today. In Borough Park, Brooklyn students and their parents struggled to make their way to Public School 160. Their brightly colored umbrellas and rain coats stood out against otherwise snow covered streets. 

A Day After the Snow Blizzard

We had a major snow blizzard here in New York City on February 9th, 2013. I took a long walk with my camera over the Brooklyn Bridge to the City Hall in Manhattan and the train from there to Central Park where I had some snow fun with my kids and thousands of other New Yorkers. Snow usually melts away in the city within a day or two, so you have to enjoy it while you can.
