While every local will tell you that winters in New York are hard, not many will admit that they’re also breathtaking, sometimes literally. In honor of this week’s bomb cyclone (meteorologists’ term, not ours), here are 20 incredible pictures of New York in the snow.
Central Park Mall
Sometimes, going out in a blizzard is the only way to get any alone time in New York City, as seen at this deserted Central Park landmark.
Central and the city
When blanketed in snow, the city jumps on top of winter fashion’s monochrome trend.
The city that sometimes sleeps
New York may be the city that never sleeps, but even it can’t resist a cat nap during a blizzard.
City in the snow
On second thought, no amount of snow is enough to clear Midtown Manhattan.
Walking this popular attraction has never looked so good (or so tourist-free)!
New Yorker on the move
With a little snow, every New York minute becomes a movie-worthy moment.
New York City subway
Who needs a reindeer-drawn sleigh when you have the New York City subway?
The Charging Bull
Even our statues are snow pros, as demonstrated by Wall Street’s famed (and frosty!) Charging Bull.
Statue of Liberty
Like any New Yorker, Lady Liberty isn’t bothered by bad weather.
A romantic stroll in the snow
Take the season off, Cupid. New York City is the ultimate wingman in any weather.
The on-the-go local lifestyle is more stop than go in the snow.
Commuting in the snow
Living in a pedestrian city comes with its (three to six inches worth of) challenges.

Winter activities in Central Park
For New Yorkers, dealing with extreme weather is just another mountain to climb—and enthusiastically sled down.
Snowy residential street
A tranquil scene you’d never want to leave—a good thing since your car is likely snowed in.
Frosty photoshoot in Times Square
Winter tourists need not fear: excellent photo ops are always in season in New York.
Not even a cyclone can keep New Yorkers from obsessing over their outfits
Local Eva Chen, formerly of Teen Vogue and Lucky and current director of fashion partnerships at Instagram, illustrates this point.

Thanks. The rest of us wouldn’t give this weather the time of day.

An absence of bumper-to-bumper traffic in New York is incredible indeed.
Like every winter before it, we’ll get through this one together, New York.
