When Winter Storm Gail hit the tri-state area in mid-December, people joked with me that the storm would surely bring with it some Pink Snow — because it shared my name, and everyone knows how much I love anything pink. Well, surprise (or not) — while exploring the neighborhood on the morning after the storm, I actually encountered Pink Snow!
The mysterious pink slush (which is what it had become by this point in the day) was found at the intersection of Avenue B and 9th Street, adjacent to a highly-trafficked bodega. I have no idea where the pink color came from, but I am glad I was lucky enough to document it before it melted and swirled down into the sewer and out to sea!
Winter Storm Jonas dumped Two Feet of white, fluffy snow on NYC on Saturday, January 23rd, and the aftermath is fairly Instagram worthy. This public phone booth, which appears to be “occupied,” stands near the corner of West 53rd Street and 6th Avenue.

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.
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.
Cars parked curbside had not that much snow on them, really.
I’m not sure who this Shopping Cart belongs to.
Here I am at Tompkins Square Park. Let’s go inside and explore.
