I went out expecting to see a wealth of snow sculptures and snow forts, but this lonely pitiful snowman was all I found. Warning: the appropriate footwear for Tompkins Square Park this morning is ice skates or crampons. All the paths are one slick ice sheet.
I went out at dawn, the snow had stopped and the wind was still. I found mostly sidewalk shovelers, dog-walkers, and fellow photographers. This alien snow guy, I assume is the product of the regular Friday night alcohol imbibers in my neighborhood.
On East Houston Street.
Annoyingly the entrance to the East River Park at Houston Street is closed for construction. There is no indication of this until you are right on top of it. There is also no indication where the closest open entrance is. I can tell you that the 6th Street and 10th Street entrances are open.
