and sometimes other places
Cool, or should I say cold? Nice set of photos.
Lovely Elisabeth! My daughter might see this for yesterday she went to New York for the weekend, and she was happy for the first time because of the fact that you have chosen this formidable personality for president. What a man!!!
Brrr that water looks so cold...I'm not familiar with your policing system - are horses used as a means of transportation as well or is this a tourist attraction?
Ohhhh that river looks cold!
Winter in NY. How many snowdays do you have?
Janice: I think the horses are used for policing events with crowds. Earlier in the day my husband had seen these horses outside the grocery and the big horse was looking down on a little dog.They stand the horses near traffic so they get used to noise etc. The officers who ride them have cool boots....Britt-A: Not sure exactly how many snow days as it varies from year to year. But it can get VERY cold here though maybe not so cold as Norway!ReaderWil: Yes, we are thrilled to have a new president.
Another lovely tour round your beautiful city - I so enjoyed it.
The positive thing about falling into the Hudson's ice water is that it would not be longlived...Our waters are very cold here, as well, even in the summer they estimate that it takes less than 10 minutes for hypothermia to set in. Love the Horses- So regal!
I think about how cold those airline passengers must have been when I look at those ice chunks! What a miracle everyone survived.
whew it looks sooooooooo cold! and those hosses look sleeeeepy....what a world away..and to think safari craig was right there ...almost in your pictures... xxx j
Wow,we don't see ice like that much....Barb
My god, that ice is impressive! Nice horses too.
That river looks so dangerously cold! Love the horses (toy and real), you have a little theme going on Elizabeth..."Chelsea Piers Horses on a New York winter day." <3
Ice and horses-what a perfect combination!
Hi Elizabeth...first time on your blog...great photo's...I came over from Pat's blog...you take city pictures very similiar to my daughter. She likes to take shots looking inside windows like you do. Infact she has one just like yours of a seamstress down in the garment district...I look forward to coming back....Sue in Atlanta
I heard there was ice in the Hudson and just had to come over and take a look. I don't recall ever seeing it like that. Hope it warms up soon!Catherine
I love the idea of horses in the city!
We've had very hot days here in Sydney, so do you think you could spare some of that ice for my long cool drink.lol.pls.
Brrrr! I get gripy out here in the PNW when it drops near freezing! But rarely does it get cold enough to freeze more than the inch of water in the chicken's container. I can't imagine chunky river ice. (I need to go get a lap blanket now).
I look forward to hearing from you!
