The East Village in Snow


One Saturday at the end of the year 2000 there was a snowstorm. The last great snowstorm of the century. I went walking to the store to get a coffee through the rapidly accumulating snow. It looked pretty neat and reminded me of something I would like to photograph if I owned a camera. So I went to the store and got a disposable one. I walked around and took pictures. When the camera ran out of film, I bought another.

I walked up 7th street and back down St. Mark's between Cooper Sq. and Tompkin's Sq. The pictures below are the best of the shots I took. Shortly after completing my walk. The plows showed up and ruined everything.


Tompkin's Square Park

This lovely rectangle nestled between Aves. A and B is the home of the Charlie Parker Jazz Festival and many community events and concerts during the warm summery monthes.  Click the link below to see how it looked during a snowy winters month.

Cooper Square

The home of  Cooper Union where Abraham Lincoln gave the famous Cooper Union address. The building was newly restored and I think looks beautiful. Especially in the snow. My Grandfather got an engineering degree there nearly a hundred years ago. Now there is a K-Mart and two Starbuck's.

East 7th Street and St. Marks

Two of the streets which run between Cooper Sq and Tompkins Sq. Quite a bit to see along the way. There were so many details that I could not possibly catch them all. As the snow fell, the scenery looked better and better.

I'll try to post more pics in the future as the spirit takes me.
