Two bikes and a basketful of snow


New York City lucked out with only 8 to 11 inches of snow, but the wind caused it to pile up in drifts, making it more difficult to trudge through the relentless white. Nevertheless, buses were up and running by noon, the Greenmarket at Union Square was doing business with a fraction of its usual booths, and a carnival atmosphere prevailed downtown as Villagers and East Villagers dug out their cars and bikes, and generally wandered around ogling the accumulated precip. Here are some photos taken around noon.
