Snowstorm and snowball fight in Times Square, Manhattan, New York (larger size)

Newer Older

New York during a 10-inch snow storm, Times Square. Brr it's cold. This is facing away from the TKTS booth. The person on the left appears to be getting a face full of snow. No one died or waved a gun around.

Also, if you just can't get enough about this snowball event, check out photog Doug Kim's work, which was featured on CNN.com. They're black and white and better action shots, IMO.
