Stella didn’t dump as much snow on NYC as predicted, but there was enough to make for some fine sneckdowns.

If you’re just joining us, sneckdowns are neckdowns formed by driving patterns in snow. They’re great for highlighting unused asphalt — street space that, if reclaimed for people, would calm traffic and make walking safer.
