SNOW DAY in New York…was a BLIZZARD

We did NOT get the predicted 24″ of snow………..just a nice dusting……..as you can see in these watercolors. BUT….tomorrow it will be dirty nasty grey sludge.

The Dakota Apartments at Central Park West and 72s street………….and the benches just inside the park.

OUR FIRST SNOW • nyc 2017

It wasn’t a heavy snowfall……….just a nice dusting of a few inches……….lightly coating the roof of the Dakota apartments.

MY TERRACE IN AUTUMN

The view over Central Park was glorious this morning is the muted sunlight.  FIFTH AVENUE was glowing.  Just above the trees……on the left…….the house with the green roof………is where mayor Bloomberg lives.  He chose not to live in the Mayors Mansion on the Upper East Side during his 12 year reign.
