The Flatiron Building after a Snow Storm, 1906

The Flatiron Building after a Snow Storm, 1906

In this view south from East 26th Street and Fifth Avenue, the Flatiron Building looks like it is plowing through the snow. It looks like a substantial amount of fresh snow has blanketed the city, all of which has been shoveled by hand. The streets are as clear as they are likely to get until the hooves of the horses tramp it into slush. But luckily for us, some anonymous photographer captured the clean beauty of this moment forever.

Bloomingdales in the Snow, 1935

Bloomingdales in the Snow, 1935

A snow storm never shuts down New York City, even in 1935. Here we see the 59th Street Crosstown Streetcar roll past Bloomingdales flagship store, which had opened only a few years before. There's still a horse-drawn vehicle even at this late date. The horse probably handled snow better than cars of the era.
