The recent snow storm in New York city reminded me of my stay there over christmas in 2010. It snowed about 60cm in one night, which completely changed the way I got to experience the city, suddenly it was so peaceful and quiet, and, obviously, so beautiful !
I had already been to NYC about a month before, so I had gotten all the basics covered…Central park under the snow at midnight was definitely something I didn’t expect I would ever do but definitely in my top ten things to do in New York City.
I got there from Toronto -where I was studying at the time- with Megabus, which I really recommend for cheap long distance bus trips. I stayed at the HI-Hostel on Amsterdam, a very conveniently located hostel, with amazing facilities (guitar hero really made our nights) where I met some amazing australians who I am still in touch with and we have been visiting each other all over the place since then. We went for diner at a place called Metro Diner once, where we were about the only customers due to the snow.
Anyways, here are a few pictures I took.
Here’s a link to what to do in NYC in winter.
Has any of you been there during a snow storm? What were your impressions?
