Fresh Snow, at the New York Public Library

NYPL in the snow
Photo by myself in Bryant Park, at Sixth Avenue and 41st Street, in Midtown.

Talks of snow Tuesday night were overhyped.

New York woke to a moderate dusting of snow, nothing at all comparable to our last blizzard. Above, one of the end pavilions at the main branch of the New York Public Library.

A few Parks Department workers were shoveling the paths. A handful of people were taking a spin on the ice rink or walking about, snapping pictures. All around was the hush that snow brings.

I'm not sure what kind of trees these are that retain their red blossoms throughout the winter. Whoever planted these trees long ago was a genius. What better way to add some color to a winter landscape?

Handsome building, as libraries ought to be. Glad you didn't get buried again. (Apparently Connecticut did).

you've really captured a beautiful angle, here Kitty. The framing, the snow, makes me think it's the 1800s
