☞ REMEMBER: Snowstorm on Lenox c. 1910

A century old photo shows the aftermath of a big New York City snowstorm in Harlem when the stuff really stuck around.  We just have a couple of mild storms in the city nowadays but the info on the above image mentions that there was an accumulated 15 inches at the time.  As far as location goes, this is just above 125th Street at the vantage point of where the Red Rooster is at today.  The taller building behind the carriage is where Corner Social is located in modern times.
