Before it turns to brown slush by traffic and feet, the morning after a blizzard in New York is magic. The blizzard itself is amazing as it blankets such a densely populated city and makes parts of Brooklyn and the outer boroughs almost unrecognizable, and the best part – the 2 feet of snow on the ground keeps everyone inside and dulls the sound of traffic, the sidewalk is indistinguishable from the road and for just once it’s quiet.
