It’s been a pretty serious winter in New York. An “Old School” winter. Monday’s snow made Central Park look like it had been flocked. Flocked. That thing they used to do to Christmas trees in the fifties and sixties to make them look like they were covered in snow. Well we got flocked. And it was breathtaking. So beautiful. Everyone had their cameras out. This sunny snow day, winter didn’t seem so bad.
