Looking Down On The Snow Storm In New York City

The snow may not have been as bad in some parts of the Northeast as forecasters predicted, but New York City was still blanketed with a nice dusting of 7 to 8 inches of fresh powder this week. Even though the city was hit with far less than the two feet predicted, officials are still urging residents to call in if you see anyone homeless or in need of shelter during the cold.

Take a look at some photos of the city from above as streets were emptied, subways shut down and grocery stores were stripped bare. Send us your photos of this month's storm on social media @HuffPostGreen and on Facebook using the hashtag #HuffPostSnow.
