Shots of NYC as "Ghost Town" During Blizzard 2016

Central Park

As of this morning New York City streets, previously closed, have reopened. Public transportation is being restored as the city rallies after a dangerous blizzard, the largest since 1869, dumped 26.8 inches of snow on Central Park, and over 30 inches on outerlying areas.

Many news articles have referred to the city, when shut down and under a travel ban, as resembling a "ghost town." During that time many residents took to social media, posting photographs of these most quiet and unusual circumstances in New York City. 

Posted here are some examples from Instagram and Twitter. Search under hashtags blizzardblizzard2016 and nyc to see more amazing shots like these.
