Accented with Snow

“We build statues out of snow, and weep to see them melt.”
—Sir Walter Scott (1781-1832)

There seems to be no melting of the snow during New York City’s winter of 2014; it will be one for the records books! What weeping there is is because as of today, 18.February, the City has been blanketed by totals of 51 inches of snow since New Year’s Day! Winter’s force has been relentless.
Some of the snow has been wet, clinging to the City’s monuments more easily. These monuments take on a whole new look when accented with snow. Some of these monuments you will see when you are part of the Greenwich Village Walking Tour or the Five Squares and Circle Tour, minus the snow!
