Snowy Seats on the Upper West Side

Snow, Upper West Side
Photo by myself on the Upper West Side, around Broadway and 76th Street.

Big Nick's is a popular pizza and burger joint. You can sit along Broadway and watch a sea of people go by, while waiting for your pie.

I shot another photo of the place during warmer times, here.

It snowed nearly the entire day Monday, big white flakes floating down to cover the sidewalks and cars. Puddles and slush formed quickly.

You can park your car on most side streets for most of the week. Drivers usually have to move their cars one day a week for street cleaning.

The streets alternate days, so that you can pick and choose what day to move your car. Some cars will sit out all week, weighted down with huge canopies of snow.

One day this winter I'll have to find a good picture of this - the streets, the snow, the people trudging by, and the cars buried, as if hibernating until Spring.

I like the atmosphere of this scene.
I could also go for one of those calzones they are advertising too!
