They city always looks so fresh and new after a snowfall. That is, until the snow turns to slush and the white fades into the sooty shades of gray. Last week I was fortunate enough to be home right after a snowfall in Brooklyn and was able to enjoy Prospect Park while the snow was still fresh, white and largely untouched.
This first snow may have only been an inch or two, but it was worth the wander through the cold. I hope you enjoy these images as much as I enjoyed the day.

Did I say winter was here in my last post? Apparently that was no joke. I cut through Bryant Park the other night on the way to the theater and caught site of this:
Frozen Fountain in Bryant Park
I worked in an office next to Bryant Park for over six years and I’ve never seen the fountain freeze. Usually the fountain has long been turned off by the time we get a sustained cold for long enough to freeze.
It looks like its going to be a long cold one. Bundle up people!
