This is a photo I took exactly a year ago on January 1st, 2013 in New York City. After a night of drinking and dancing, we decided that we would have a low key day and visit the High Line. This is a quick snap I took of my friend whilst he had his back to me.
New York City is the coldest place I have ever been (more so than the snowy parts of Europe, including Norway). It was only about 1-2 degrees but the wind chill made it feel like -20 degrees. Or perhaps it’s because we walked around all day in the miserable cold. We all wore furry hats with ear flaps to keep our heads/ears warm. A man walked past us on the high line and made a snide comment about how he wore these hats before they became cool. We thought it was funny.
