All month long, the neighborhood has been captivated by the always growing and evolving snowman outside the bodega at the corner of Essex and Canal streets. But it is now clear his influence extends way beyond this bustling intersection. Take a look at some of the photographic evidence we’ve received in the past couple of days from Lo-Down readers:
Joel Raskin noticed this lovely lady in the East River courtyard. Hinting that maybe the Essex Snowman is ready for a “love connection,” Joel suggests, “they’d make beautiful snow kids.”
Giancinta Frisillo created this mini-snowman on the fire escape of her apartment on Pitt Street. Hopefully the poor guy digging out his car in the background took a moment to admire Giancinta’s handiwork!
This dapper guy and his proud creators are hanging out in front of the Henrietta Szold School on East Broadway. Thanks to Carol Driscoll for sending this shot along.
And finally, our own contribution. We snapped this photo yesterday on Grand Street, just to the west of Essex. As you’ve probably heard, more snow’s in the forecast this week. So let snowman fever run wild! Send us your photos at firstname.lastname@example.org.
