Snow in New York City 2011! Photos & Snow Recipes.


The first real snowstorm of the season in New York City is always an interesting experience. The crazed, taxicab-packed streets filled with holiday shoppers, honking horns and gleeful tourists were hushed this weekend as over 20 inches of snow muffled the city. The churning sounds of city life were replaced with the scraping of snow shovels and roaring engines of snow blowers.

How to Spend a Snow Day?
I started off today in debate. Should I go out and frolic in the downtown NYC winter wonderland and risk a frozen face and soggy cold toes, or should I surrender to the "snowed-in" feeling and snuggle under my robe all day? Well it looks like I squeezed in both activities. And of course, as I ventured out to survey the snowy landscape, I brought my camera. Here are my snow in NYC 2010 photos (and a few snowy-recipes)...

At the end of my photos I'll share with you my fave snowed-in recipes.

Destination? Snow. So just where did my husband and I venture out to? We arrived a few blocks away at Le Pain Quotidien, which was "thank goodness" open! Hooray for hot soy lattes, farro porridge and a bowl of fresh berries. Here are my shots of the Greenwich Village/Washington Square Park/downtown Broadway area of the city...
