New York is a winter wonderland of sorts, with Cool New York, a three week extravaganza of events from various cultural groups in all the boroughs. The Mayor announced Cool NY by saying, "All these events showcase the unparalleled diversity that makes New York City the coolest place in the whole world." NY1 points out that the event, which runs from January 9 to February 2, coincides "with NYC & Company's annual Paint the Town Winter Celebration." Heather Graham helped Mayor Bloomberg announce Cool New York. They are standing next to an ice sculpture by Ice Fantasies in Brooklyn; funny, we would call Graham's acting and the Mayor's delivery more wooden than icy, but whatever.
