The Hudson River is cluttered with thick chunks of ice.
The center of the river moves extremely swiftly. How one would hate to fall into it.
Chelsea Piers. Friday afternoon, looking west towards New Jersey.
Clearing the ice on Pier 63.
Mechanical horses for children at Chelsea Piers.....
...and real horses on 8th Avenue.
Cool, or should I say cold? Nice set of photos.ReplyDelete
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!!!ReplyDelete
Brrr that water looks so cold...ReplyDelete
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!ReplyDelete
Winter in NY. How many snowdays do you have?ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
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!ReplyDelete
I think about how cold those airline passengers must have been when I look at those ice chunks! What a miracle everyone survived.ReplyDelete
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 jReplyDelete
Wow,we don't see ice like that much....BarbReplyDelete
My god, that ice is impressive! Nice horses too.ReplyDelete
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." <3ReplyDelete
Ice and horses-what a perfect combination!ReplyDelete
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 AtlantaReplyDelete
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!ReplyDelete
I love the idea of horses in the city!ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
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).ReplyDelete
