One of my favorite views when I’m at home is the steady flow of planes up and down the Hudson River. There are none out today. The three area airports are theoretically open but traffic is spectacularly absent. Only a couple of planes even tried to get in to JFK yesterday and eventually they changed their minds because conditions were just too crappy. As in runway lights and markers not visible under the mounds of snow or braking action reported as “nil” levels of crappy.
A few planes are trickling in to JFK this morning and the first Newark inbound (Air India) diverted to JFK instead. It will be ugly out there the next few hours as things get sorted and dug out but, well, there is plenty of beautiful out in the city as well. I took a walk around the neighborhood this morning and captured a few images showing off the snow, light and fun happening on this snow day in New York City.
