|Looking North up 3rd Avenue|
It is quite staggering the muffling effect of snow. With side-streets largely blocked by drifting snow, there was no real traffic. One Range Rover was even abandoned in front of our building (tee hee!), trucks skidded wildly. But overall there was a golden silence, no honking fire-trucks, ambulances or wailing police cars to disturb the peace. New York, the “city that never sleeps”, actually fell silent. Magical.
