Shout out to WNYC Radio and @WNYCArchives - as part of their Hurricane Sandy coverage, they posted historic photos of famous NYC super storms, including the 1947 blizzard, which dropped 26.4 inches of snow on Central Park. They found this pic of our landmark 42nd Street Library (and poor, stoic Patience and Fortitude) in the aftermath of that storm, and we thought - considering that NYC is shut down and recovering after Frankenstorm - that it was appropriate to share. Remember, NYPL is closed on Oct. 30; stay tuned for the latest on reopenings. Meanwhile, New Yorkers and beyond, if you want to donate to the Red Cross so they can provide shelter, food, emotional support and more to those affected by Sandy, text the word REDCROSS to 90999, call 1-800-RED-CROSS or go to their website.
Stay safe our East Coast Friends! We are hoping you can get back to normal soon.
