Blizzard

Sara Delano Roosevelt Park

"A blizzard in New York is like a blizzard nowhere else; the snow falls in strange vectors of force, leaning around buildings to get at the street as if around the trunks of banyan trees. Snow does not come to the city without a struggle, for its very presence represents an immediate challenge to Man the Toolmaker, Man the Designer, Man the Builder, who has thrown up his structures of form and function like so many towers of Babel, not to reach the heavens, but to deny them access to the ground."
Myles Eric Ludwig, Golem, a Hero for Our Time
