Living through an entire winter season is basically a new experience for me. Being a tropical guy who loves warm weather and goes for gorgeous tropical beaches, moving to the U.S. northeast was a big switch for me. I have never actually stayed long in places during winter visits unlike my recent stay in New England where I have lived with snow storms and all. Nevertheless, this winter experience is an unforgettable moment for me and it came after one of New England’s most colorful fall seasons yet featured in another blog.
Here are some memorable winter snap shots taken in New England and nearby New York.
Snow came late this season but it came with a force with the first major snow storm dropping almost 30 inches of snow around New England.
Time to shovel and turn on the snow blowers!
On sunny days, the neighborhood is indeed an enjoyable sight as we roam around seeing the colorful houses amidst the snow-covered lawns.
And sunset time is lovely too.
A recent snow storm dumped almost a foot of snow in New York City and it was just timely as the following day we had a business transaction in the big city giving us the chance to stroll along Times Square, Midtown and Central Park.
Our first stop was Bryant Park where the Winter Village is also located.
We then briefly stopped at Herald Square.
Our last stop was the captivatingly beautiful Central Park and we spent our time there until sunset.
Then it was dark in Central Park.
The Empire State building’s spire was lit up as we bade the big city goodnight.
