New York City’s Central Park Covered in Snow

It has been a particularly cold winter so far in New York. The massive snow storms and frigid temperatures have sent most people indoors to seek warmth under fuzzy blankets with hot chocolate in hand. However, in response to the cold, photographer Dina Litovsky decided to venture outside to document the unusually deserted landscapes throughout Central Park.

Born in the Ukraine, Litovsky moved to New York more than 20 years ago, but she said “I realized that I've never seen Central Park in the snow in all these years. It was pretty magical there, I expected it to be scenic but [I] was just overwhelmed by how gorgeous everything was."

The collection of monochromatic photographs, simply called Snow in Central Park, shows the accumulations of snow covering everything in a quiet, wintery wonderland. The park, normally booming with energy and life and vibrant colors, is completely bleak and dreary. Yet Litovsky looked beyond the gloomy atmosphere to capture incredibly breathtaking images that convey a few rare moments of quiet in an otherwise bustling city.
