My Morning Commute from Brooklyn to Manhattan in the "Blizzard" of 2015
If you're reading this, you already know: Winter Storm Juno was pretty much a no-go in New York City. The so-called Blizzard of 2015 dumped about 6.5" of snow on the Five Boroughs before turning its attention North & East to pound New England harder than Bill Nye. Around the city, sighs of relief were quickly replaced with groans of disappointment as 8 million New Yorkers realized they probably had to go to work today. (Now that the subways are running again, the list of solid excuses is dwindling fast.)
But hey! Turn that frown upside-down, unless it already is upside-down, in which case, continue smiling, because 6.5" inches of snow is still enough white stuff to make NYC look not-crappy for a few days/hours/minutes. Huzzah! To take advantage of the idyllic city scenery, I woke up early this morning, grabbed my camera, and hit the streets. Since my Q train was still Cuomo'd as of about 7:30am, I walked from my apartment in Fort Greene to Thrillist HQ is in Soho. Here's what I saw on the way in.
