New York City view from Central Park in the Winter, 1933

New York is currently seeing a storm pass through with freezing rain and sleet. Yes, it sucks, but to remind you of how pretty the City is in the winter, here is a great vintage photograph of Central Park circa 1933. Brooklyn photographer Samuel Gottscho snapped this great shot facing south in the Park of the semi-frozen lake, the landscape covered in snow and the bare trees sticking out like popsicle sticks. Bow Bridge is off in the distance, and you can actually see the skyline as this was long before the immense buildup of Midtown Manhattan skyscrapers.
