Snow-Covered Central Park Dazzles New Yorkers

New York’s first major snowstorm of the season covered Central Park with nearly a half-foot of snow on January 7, and left higher totals elsewhere in the city, officials said.

“Woke up to that,” Erziak wrote on Instagram, alongside a heart emoji. “It’s that time of the year. #cloud9 #homesweethome #nycstateofmind.”
