I think weather reporters everywhere can agree that Blizzard Jonas lived up to their expectations of burying the East Coast in snow. In the middle of the city, we reached 26.8 inches of snowfall, while Jackson Heights, Queens got 34 inches, and our neighbors in New Jersey and Yonkers measured 39 and 20.5 inches, respectively, reports the National Weather Service.
No matter which measuring stick you used, we got a lot of snow, to put it mildly. You read about that snowfall online and watched the news footage. But Blizzard Jonas may have actually looked different depending on where you live in New York City. And since I know many of our applicants aren’t from around here, I thought it would be nice to share with all of you what Blizzard Jonas looked like in our respective backyards. Here are a few photos from the Office of Admissions and Financial Aid staff and program assistants.
