The snow storm of the century! TV weathermen were predicting snow drifts high enough to cover the Statue of Liberty, or so it seemed during the height of last week’s blizzard hysteria.
Fortunately for residents of Lower Manhattan, snowstorm “Nemo” left us with only a foot of snow– the perfect amount for sledding, making snowmen and showing off our cold-weather fashions. Stores and restaurants were open, the power was on and Internet speeds were blazing. This was no hurricane Sandy!
Scroll down for photos of this weekend’s snowfall in the East Village, the West Village and Soho. All photos were taken on an iPhone 4s or iPhone 5 and edited with Instagram.
