When the whole world is snowed in - the best place to be is in the city!

We take amazing walks down the middle of streets normally stuffed with automobiles. My favorite method is leaving in daylight and coming back in darkness. And I am very partial to my Mount Vernon, with its snow and ice covered statues...people sledding down the steps in the square...and wonderful snowmen lining the park benches. All of the colors and lights are so vivid against the velvet blue sky.

Magic Lantern

Strolling around NYC at nighttime is magical! The crowds and the noise vanish when the sky turns velvet and you spot so many things you might pass without notice in daylight hours.

I just loved this quaint little shop, with its Marrakesh arch, the warm interior bricks and endless sparkling lanterns hanging from its ceiling.
