What would you do if you have a snow day? Were you the kind of kid who:
1. ... would hide behind the pillars at the entrances to Central Park and pelt expensive cars with snowballs as they drove by? 2. ... make snow angels in the normally untouchably dangerous turf in Tompkins Square Park? 3. ... stick your tongue to icicles hanging off the Manhattan Bridge overpass? 4. ... make yellow snow on the pristine, untouched stretch of grass in the middle of Park Avenue? 5. ... watch other kids playing through the glass door, hiding from the weather with some hot chocolate and the homeless guy in your entryway?
Wow. Translating our suburban snow fantasies into city life was even grimmer than we thought.
