  19. Wow ! What wonderful snow images ! Love the girl with the pink umbrella. Funny how everyone was taking her picture. It truly is a magical Christmas day in the big city.

  20. Vlad I love how you have captured not only the beauty of the snow but the excitement of the people. It strikes me that here where we have snow six months of the year, we don’t ‘see’ our own day to day images so beautifully.

  21. Great shots!! I particularly like ‘shelter from the storm’ and the ‘alice in wonderland’ statue which I have not seen in the snow before. Note to self stay away from NYC for the next 5 months… I am not a big fan of the cold or snow. I actually haven’t seen snow in at least 10 years.

    Sadly the roads looked the same way. I think the outgoing mayor no longer gives a hoot!

  26. So beautiful and so fortunate for you to get some snow. We don’t get any here down South :(

    I enjoyed the photos, they bring back memories of the times I spent in snow. And the “photoshoot” was real funny, when everyone started to take photos of the girl and nobody seems to mind.

    • It was fun! Of course, it always is if it doesn’t snow too much, and if you don’t have to shovel the snow yourself in any case—in other words, in New York City (or at least Manhattan) on a weekend ;-)

  34. Such glorious photos. And such a winning combo – Central park, happy people AND snow. The pink umbrella is stunning. My own memories of Central Park are in a blistering heat-wave pushing 100 degrees. This is much more lovely. Thanks.

  43. Isn’t it interesting to see how happy and excited some people are about something that two months later we are all tearing our hair out over?
