Winter Storm Jonas: The storm to end all storms

As of 7 p.m. Eastern Standard Time, New York’s Central Park, measured 25.1 inches of snow. It’s already the third highest accumulated snowstorm on record. After a week of wondering whether or not we will get such a blockbuster storm, well…

With over 84 million people in its cross-hairs, Winter Storm Jonas, will at the very least will go down in memory as one of the biggest snowstorm to hit the Eastern Seaboard. I will remember it as the storm I took pictures. So here is my collection of great shots. In short I was Ray in the video.


Looking south on 5th Avenue


The General Grant National Monument, a.k.a. Grant’s Tomb under a pristine blanket of snowfall


Grant’s Tomb neighbor, Riverside Church, a bulwark against the maelstrom.


The former Low Library building under some serious snowfall.


When in doubt, take the local, which is what most subway lines were today. It was also a way to get around and stay warm.


Where were you when the blizzard of ’16 hit?



The Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Monument on 89th Street and Riverside Drive.


Children of all ages sledding down the hill behind the Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Monument.


Looking east at West 87th Street.



Crossing 43rd Street in Times Square


Times Square looks brighter when the weather isolates her from the city. More so than when under normal circumstances.


Yup that’s me in a misguided attempt to be Mary Tyler Moore. No article of clothing was harming in the making of this picture.
