Default Deep Winter Freeze @ Central Park South

Whereas snow often melts into nothing within a day in New York City compared to the outlying suburbs that remain white the entire season -- I theorize that because of the heat generated by the buildings, the underground tunnels, and the city's never-to-be-outdone, never-ending buzz -- this time around the cold spell has been unrelenting. The minute we stepped into winter, as one co-worker said, the subfreezing temperatures never left. In past winters it used to be a big deal whenever we reached the teens and you'd never hear the end of it from excited weathermen and women on TV, but this winter we've been so inured to the single-digits that no one talks about how cold it is anymore. It just is. I realize I'm a couple thousand miles off but I'm guessing this is how it's like living in Alaska...

At least you were able to get some different shots of the city. Very nice.

Very pretty, well composed series. Not quite like Alaska where daylight is is about four hours this time of year.

Very rich pictures. Normally it looks like that up here - about the same latitude as Alaska. Very rich indeed
