New York Winter Nights

Being an office dweller, the short days of winter mean that most of my time outside is at night. The record snow we’ve been having (mostly melted now after the warmer temperatures of the past few days) has given the city an expression of frozen calm. I thought I would post a few of my winter’s night pictures, starting with this one of Cooper Square, looking towards the Cooper Union Foundation Building.

There were snow piles all around the Brooklyn Public Library, with a light fog making the streetlamps glow.

The fog also make the Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Arch across from the library in Grand Army Plaza an incredible sight, looming in the cold air, almost invisible until you were upon it, then suddenly monolithic.

I will end with some daylight, with the grid of shoveled snow in Union Square.

    Thanks Mary! Maybe I should make it into a Christmas card.

    It would make a great Christmas card. That was my first thought.

    I will have to superimpose myself there, in a warm coat with a festive scarf.
