Well, looks like that excruciating heat wave may have finally broken, but if you're not feeling the relief yet, take a look at these photos of the city being transformed into a winter wonderland. Breathe deep the scent of artificial winter!

EV Grieve says the snow is part of a commercial shoot that appears to have taken over the city for the past few days, and the little blue bag in the background of the snowman shot implies that it might be for a rock hawker called Tiffany's. A quick call to the NYPL confirms that indeed, the shoot was for the jeweler, no doubt preparing now for the Christmastime diamond rush.
