New York vs. The Polar Vortex - PHOTOBLOG


New York (along with the rest of the Northeast) has been taking a pounding from Jack Frost this week. The meteorology community has blamed the inclement weather on something known as the “Polar Vortex” but we here at BTR have a different name for it, “seasonal depression.” Though not everything about the winter is exactly a bummer, in fact, the Big Apple can look pretty sublime this time of year. Check out the photos below if you don’t believe us.
