For the first time in nearly a year, much of the city was eerily quiet for reasons other than solely the pandemic.

Those hardy enough to brave the elements Monday slogged with sleds into parks, while others enjoyed moments of solitude amid the nor’easter that dumped more than a foot of powder on Central Park by the afternoon.

Our team captured some snowy scenes from around the city:

Central Park had transformed into a winter wonderland by the afternoon.


A parent pulled his kids out of Fort Greene Park in Brooklyn.


A 7 subway stop in Sunnyside, Queens, took on a ghost-town vibe after the MTA stopped above-ground service during the storm.


Times Square proved a bit more peaceful than usual.


A sturdy soul jogged with a buddy through Fort Greene Park.


Manhattan thoroughfares drew few vehicles and fewer pedestrians.


Snow pals sprang to life in Sunnyside’s Noonan Park.
