Snow Day Pics: The Sculpted Snow Creatures of Brooklyn

The buses aren’t running and the schools are closed for only the seventh time in almost 35 years. And it’s officially the snowiest January on record! What can a Brooklynite do but make fun snow sculptures? (And what else could a snowed-in blogger do but show you pictures of them?)

Admittedly, this first picture is from last weekend; my girlfriend snapped this moai snowface in Red Hook, outside of the Everbrite Mercantile Company on Van Brunt Street, near Wolcott.

What mysterious culture built the snow faces of Red Hook?

Meanwhile, Amusing the Zillion has this Bruce Handy photo from this morning, of snowmen on the Coney Island boardwalk:

While Fucked in Park Slope snagged a shot of this “anatomically correct snowman” outside the Key Food on Seventh Avenue.

So, what else do you guys wanna do today?
