… Happy February… its COLD…

I don’t know if it was always like this, but I think that February is the height of winter in NYC. Or maybe it is just the point at which I am done being cold and ready to expose my skin to sunlight again. Thankfully most of us can stay warm indoors… its amazing how the “wildlife” (if you want to refer to overly friendly pigeons as that) have adapted to city life. Check out these pigeons using a subway grate as heating source. Gotta say maybe they’re more evolved than we think….

“But, for all that, they had a very pleasant walk. The trees were bare of leaves, and the river was bare of water-lilies; but the sky was not bare of its beautiful blue, and the water reflected it, and a delicious wind ran with the stream, touching the surface crisply.”

- Charles Dickens

It seems like a fleeting memory but it was warm enough, not too long, that strolling along the water was a good idea. However right now it would be beautiful it would undoubtedly be too cold!
So in memory of the not too distant warm weather behind us (and in our future).. enjoy these photos from a walk through Inwood Hill Park this past fall.
