I had the chance to meet David Patrick Columbia, the editor of New York Social Diary, a few months ago. I’ve been a fan of his for about six years and was delighted to meet him in person. There’s always something interesting on NYSD, and if you’re not subscribing to it, you should!Today, as snow prepares to dump on this part of the country again, I was enchanted to see a photographic feature NYSD did about Snowtrees in New York’s Central Park. Brad Bateman, a real estate agent and artist, takes the snow and melts it in his hands, and then applies it to trees, specifically along a path in Central Park. Here he is on the left, with Lonesome Juan, and his friend, Gann Brewer. I really love things like this that are so unexpected, so simple and yet so joyful. If it snows tonight, you might just see some snowtrees around my neighbourhood tomorrow.
