We made it! Although our streets and sidewalks are still piled with snow (getting dirtier by the minute), New York City made it through Blizzard Jonas. For many it was probably a great time to catch up on sleep, binge watch an entire season of a television show, take their kids out sledding, and take in the swirling storm around us.
Here are our favorite moments from Blizzard Jonas from New York City and beyond, submitted and shared by our readers:
1. Casey Neistat Snowbarding Through NYC
One of our favorite urban disrupters Casey Neistat took to the streets snowboarding while being towed by a Jeep. Neistat, a popular YouTuber and filmmaker who previously took on drivers for parking in New York City bike lanes, careens through places from Times Square to small side streets with friends. They jump off mounds, take on a fellow snowboarder in the East Village, sometimes wipe out, and finally get stopped by an NYPD car near Bryant Park. The officer says, “Someone complained about you, so we’re just gonna act like we’re talking to ya, alright?” “You guys are awesome,” they respond.
Reminds us of the snowboarders who took the funicular up Montmartre for a ride in Paris.
