NYC East Village: Post-Juno in the Park!

Geoffrey said a funny thing to me today, which is that he read on the Interwebs that Winter Storm Juno was not so much a Blizzard as it was “a Storm with a Very Good Publicist.” Hah! So true.  Juno failed to completely kick our asses to the curb but it did leave about six inches of white fluffy stuff on the ground.

At lunch today, I went for a walk in the hood and took some pictures. This is what it looked like around Noon on the day after the snowstorm in the East Village, NYC.

UnShoveled Sidewalk

The streets had been plowed continuously all through the night and 80% of the sidewalks were at least somewhat shoveled, so it was not too hazardous to navigate my way without falling on my ass. The above photo is a good example of a sidewalk that no one had shoveled. It still looks very beautiful.

Snow Covered Car

Cars parked curbside had not that much snow on them, really.

Grocery Cart

I’m not sure who this Shopping Cart belongs to.

Tompkins Square Park Sign

Here I am at Tompkins Square Park. Let’s go inside and explore.

Benches with Snow

There is not that much snow on the benches. I have seen way better.

Ping Pong Table

In the spring and summer, people play Ping Pong on that thing.

Fountain

This is a Fancy Bird Bath. Or something.

Snowman 1

These kids were making a few Snowmen with their mom.

Snowman 3

Here’s another one that kind of looks like a Snow Ghost to me.

Snowman 2

And another one pretty close by.

Kids Sledding

Little kids were Sledding on a not very impressive hill.

Dog Run

Many people were out running their dogs. Dogs Love Snow!

Doggies in the Snow

I enjoyed watching these little ones play.

Do Not Feed the Pigeons

Don’t even think about it.

Chess Tables

Too cold to play Chess.

Snow on Bushes and Statue

Snow untouched by humans. So gorgeous.

Ice Covered SUV

Community Garden Whirligigs

On the way back home, I walked by a few of the remaining East Village Community Gardens. There is a story of life there, even in the dead of winter.
