I think many people were a little shocked Monday morning to see much snow had fallen in New York City overnight and how the snow had arranged itself after falling and blowing for many constant hours. It will take a few days for the city to get back to normal.
The winter scenes early morning after a big snowfall are always the best, before too many people start tramping through the snow drifts and before the big trucks arrive to clear the snow away.

A few more images from Monday morning:
|The wind continues to blow, making it uncomfortable to venture outside.|
|The legs of park benches were buried in snow. |
|One of the advantages of a giant snowfall is that pedestrians are at liberty to walk down the middle of the street.|
The black and white images best present the timeless qualities of snowfall in the city.
