The weather forecasters told us we'd see a mix of snow/rain this morning followed by snow beginning around 6pm and continuing overnight - dropping another 10 inches of the white stuff on us. I think they got their AM and PM mixed up. We've had moderate snow falling since around 8am and it's been steady. As of yesterday, we were within 15 inches of the record for snowiest winter in NYC.

Bernard Baruch Houses at Delancey Street near FDR Drive. With over 2,100 apartments in 17 buildings, this is the largest New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) apartment complex in Manhattan - completed around 1959.

The snow came again last night - starting around midnight. It was still snowing at 6am. By then, our building crews had our sidewalks cleared. By 7:30am when I took these photos, DSNY was plowing the streets. We've already had enough snow this season for two average seasons.

We've had mountains of snow (mostly at intersections) created by plows during and after the big blizzard back in December. Freezing temperatures kept the snow frozen for much of the past 3 weeks. Now that the temperature is above freezing, DSNY is on a mission to break down these mountains. One truck pushes a bunch of snow into the middle of the street. The following truck then spreads the snow over a wider area. Passing traffic does the rest of the job by crushing it until it eventually disappears. Magic.

Today has been a miserable day, weather-wise. It started with a dusting of snow which put a fresh coating on top of the snow that still remains from the Dec 26 snowpocalypse (yeah, there's been snow on the ground for about 21 consecutive days). Snow turned to freezing rain, then rain. The good news is the temperature is now above freezing and the rain is slowly washing away the snow.

Developer Larry Silverstein's new Silver Towers at the far west side of Manhattan near 42nd Street. These buildings look very different than the Silver Towers owned by New York University about two miles south near their Greenwich Village campus.

Two full weeks after the great Christmas Snowpocalypse Blizzard of 2010 - parts of Ahearn Park is still covered with snow (really ice) as are the curbs in many parts of the neighborhood. We're expecting another 6-13 inches of snow to begin falling later today!

Brooklyn Bridge Park viewed from the South Street Seaport. The park is on the Brooklyn side of the East River. At the left is the Jehovah's Witnesses Watchtower building.

Two views of the Manhattan Bridge. First, from Madison & Pike Streets - about 3 blocks from the river. Next, from under the FDR Drive at the river's edge.

One of my favorite buildings in the neighborhood - on East Broadway at Samuel Dickstein Place. The shadows on the wall caught my attention as I approached the corner.

After dumping tons of snow on us earlier in the week, Mother Nature treated us to a pretty decent sunset on the last eve of 2010. I guess that's her way of wishing us a happy new year!
