New Yorkers share amazing photos of snowy deserted streets

By Ciara Flaherty

While it has failed to live up to the ominous prediction of ‘worst blizzard ever’, Storm Juno has definitely made her presence known.

Yesterday, officials ordered people to stay inside, banned travel and vehicles from the streets, closed bridges and tunnels, and assembled their biggest ploughing crews ahead of what they thought would be several feet of snow.

And while the snow has not reached those levels in NY (although New England is taking a battering), the streets have been uncharacteristically quiet overnight and people have been sharing photos of the city as you’ve never seen it before - empty.

And Nile Rodgers of legendary funk and disco band Chic was doing a sterling job tweeting the changing view from his NY apartment.

Looks vaguely apocalyptic, doesn't it?
