Shortly before 10, Gothamist got a tip that it was snowing in Manhattan in the Flatiron district. Just a few minutes ago, we witnessed the first snowfall of the Winter outside our offices in Greenpoint. The snow seemed to be coming from a swath of dark clouds above us. Those clouds have since been replaced by blue skies.

We tried to take a photo of the snow, but there was so little of it. The best photographic evidence we could come up with was the pictures above of snow streaking by and of snowflakes on a garbage can. Very exciting. Did you see the snow earlier this morning?

And if you forget what snow looks like, there are always those holiday snowflake stamps from the USPS.
