Hats off, coats open!

Last week we shivered and froze, but today New Yorkers are basking in unseasonably warm weather. In fact, this temporary respite from frigid conditions (predictions are for snow within a week) has broken the city’s records for high temperatures in January.

Here are a few images of New Yorkers relaxing under the bare branches and enjoying a brief preview of spring.

  5. I love this post and your little comments on each pictures are just perfect.
    A friend of mine who has relocated from Belgium to NYC about a year ago, remember that it was exactly the same when he first visited, nearly to the day: they were visiting houses completely freezing, a few days later they were eating outside on a terrasse.

  7. And it’s back to freezing cold this weekend.

    But I’m not complaining. I rather it be cooler than warmer.
