Daily News, February 16, 1945, p. 29 (By Fellig)

DESERTED
Unable to proceed, owners of these cars abandoned them on West Side Highway, near 90th St. Mayor LaGuardia refused to permit use of water to clear streets. He said water crisis is worse than snow crisis.”

(Presumably this is one of the last fotos by Fellig to appear in the Daily News. By 1945 he receives credit… Typical “stark” photo made at night for a tabloid… A frozen dessert… The icing on the cake…)

Winter From Empire State Building
Snow was almost gone from pavements yesterday, but it lay thick on skyscraper roofs. No traffic there, 5 to 10 degrees colder.

Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall from Google Maps… Or, Winter from above the Empire State Building
Snow was lingers on pavements and curbs yesterday, but it lay on skyscraper roofs. No traffic there… (Too lazy and cheap to go to the top of the Empire State Building… With the magic of Google maps and Photoshop…)

New York Chinese Welcome New Year to Pell Street in a Snowstorm
In the Chinese calendar, today is New Year’s… Chinatown welcomed it at midnight with the traditional lion dance to drive away evil spirits. Weegee made this picture of the ceremony from a fire escape above headquarters of the Hip Sing Chinese Association, 15 Pell St…

New York Chinese Do Not Welcome New Year on Pell Street after a Small Snowstorm
In the Chinese calendar, today is not New Year’s… Ceegee made these pictures from Pell St., in front of the Hip Sing Chinese Association, 15 Pell St. (That building probably has not changed much in 62 years.)

The Storm Wasn’t Really This Bad
Weegee was after snow pictures Saturday morning and he found this one on Columbus Circle. The snow didn’t really fall this heavily. This is just the way the snowplow piled it up. To make it look worse Weegee put his camera on the street and shot upward.

The Press Agent Wasn’t Snowed In
No kidding, these were the Grape Fruit Gals pretending to shovel snow outside the Winter Garden Theater, where by an odd coincidence, they are playing in Laffing Room Only. Press agent’s handout said the girls dropped by rehearsals to tackle the snowstorm because of the manpower shortage.
Joe Flynn, the press agent, holds the girls’ coats while they pose. Only reason we have the pictures is that Weegee happened by.
You see, it’s like this…

No snow, but the Winter Garden (1634 Broadway) remains, standing strong… Weegee Mia! disco ball and all…
4.5 inches of snow and strong winds in New York City on January 16, 1945, made the 11 inches of snow in January the heaviest since 1936…
