After the Snow, in Soho

Soho under snow
Photo by myself on Greene and Spring Streets, in Soho.

Even with loads of snow, slush, trash and parked cars, Soho still manages to look beautiful to me.

I took a brief walk about Soho Wednesday afternoon, to see how this neighborhood was coping with the snow. The narrow streets and shoppers are great for taking photographs.

As usual, visitors were in full force, even though many hadn't thought to pack knee high galoshes. The post-holiday sales haven't kicked in quite yet, but that didn't stop people from going at it.

Crossing
Snow is still piled high, especially at street corners.

Curbside
A cross section through the snow reveals bikes still chained to sign posts.

While walking around, all you could hear was the constant sound of dripping, as the snow was melting away. Temperatures were in the mid to upper 30s this afternoon, and are expected to climb to the mid-40's by Friday.

I've been reading your log for a while now. Great photos and a really interesting place - both this site and NYC :) I feel like i could like the city :P And here, in Gorzów, we're having a lot of snow as well :] Greetings from Poland. (sorry for all possible mistakes I made...)

Ha! In the background of the second shot I see the sign for Evolution, one of my favorite Soho shops! I'm glad New York is digging out. But now, Kitty, you've got me jonesing for a visit to Uniqlo.

It might take a while until the Beautiful and Good will shine through, yet it does.

Thank you for taking me into the streets. Please have you all a wonderful New Year.
