I tend to like snow though, so I decided to head off to buy some stamps, then if I was still having fun, I'd head down to Riverside Park.
It was late enough in the afternoon that anyone who was out (shoveling supers aside) were probably there, like me, by choice. A rather cheerful atmosphere permeated, at least amongst the pedestrians. I think the drivers were having less fun.
Of course part of our enjoyment no doubt comes from having more space to ourselves than usual. As you can imagine, this was even more true when I headed down the park. Even in good weather, this place isn't really on the way to anything. If you're here, it's because you chose to be.
