Meteorologists are predicting between two and four inches of the fluffy stuff before the storm subsides later today. Will you be sledding? Most of the choice spots are uptown; here on the Lower East Side, the best bet is probably the man-made incline of the East River Amphitheater.
Meanwhile, we dug through the archives of the New York Public Library and the Museum of the City of New York to see how previous generations enjoyed the pastime of sledding and sleigh riding. There is a slight difference between the two, with the latter more of a transportation method pulled by horses … or reindeer.
Most of the historic photos were shot around Central Park.
