Snow Covered Benches Along Riverside Drive

A walk in the midst of a snowstorm is a magical experience. Big fluffy flakes (the best kind) muffle the relentless sounds of the city and soften some of the sharp edges. The first flakes bring out the patterns of the paving and highlight features like benches, doors and wrought iron gates. Not quite monochromatic, subtle yet dramatic, gray skies above but everything getting whiter by the minute. Best of all, if you are a visitor, you don't have to shovel the snow.
