Ice on the Hudson

Pancake ice

Pancake ice and wooden piling

New York, NY, USA

I went out this afternoon to take a look at the recently-opened High Line Park. From the park, I saw that the Hudson River along the West Side was thick with pancake ice, so I walked down to the water to take a closer look and some pictures.

I ended up walking along the West Side Greenway to Pier 66, where wind-whipped spray had choked the Long Time waterwheel and frosted the railings with still more ice.
