What you see are New Yorkers fallen victim to well-deserved child-like behavior- making snow angels on the city's sidewalks.
While children looked on in surprise (and envy)- snowball fights have broken out among groups of adults.
About six inches of the freezy skid-stuff appears to have fallen in TS so far- with higher amounts north and east of NYC.
More than a foot of snow has been reported in parts of Long Island- and in the Boston MA area.
The snowfall is being driven by winds gusting to more than 60 mph at times- with both areas virtually shut-down.
