New York City winter. Snow in Soho on Mercer Street.

Soho is so beautiful in the snow especially right after snow has freshly fallen and still sits like icing on the fire escapes and street signs.

This part of Soho is part of the Soho Cast Iron District which consists of 500 buildings that feature distinct cast-iron architecture spanning over a 26 block radius. Many of the buildings date back to the 1870s when the area was primarily residential. However, most of the residences during the later part of the 20th century were converted for commercial use which allowed Soho to play an integral role in the commercial development of New York City.

This is a view looking north up Mercer Street in Soho towards midtown. The Chrysler Building can be seen in the distance. The snow-covered sign on the left belongs to Fanelli’s Cafe which has stood in this spot since the 1850s.

This was taken during one of the last huge snowstorms we had in New York City back during the winter season of 2010-2011 with my Panasonic FZ-35 (loved that camera!). I have been pining away wishing for snow like this since we really haven’t gotten snow in a major way here in NYC since that winter season. Photos like this one will just have to suffice, I guess :)
