Suddenly Spring

March 20, 2010

After a season of frigid winds, record snowfalls, bitter cold and torrential downpours, the last official day of winter brought a sudden, delightful change in the weather.

The sun was bright, the sky was clear, the temperature soared to record-breaking heights, and winter-weary New Yorkers shed their heavy gear and headed outside. The area near the State Supreme Courthouse in Long Island City, Queens presented the contrast of bare branches and sun worshippers, both welcoming this preview of Spring.
