These Vintage Photos Of New York City In Blizzards Are Wonderful

There’s a fairly large snow storm barreling down on the northeastern United States which will no doubt result in plenty of new images, but the Twitter feed of presidential historian Michael Beschloss is showing many more from the past.

Beschloss, who will soon join The New York Times as a columnist on history, has been sharing vintage images of New York City in the snow along with others from Washington, D.C. and Boston. (He’s worth following on Twitter @BeschlossDC if you don’t already.)

Check out what he’s been sharing:
