While the rest of us were bundled up indoors last night in anticipation of Snor’easter Juno, Brooklyn photographer Jaka Vinsek set out on a journey to capture New York’s streets covered in snow. “I started at 10pm and got home at 7am,” he says. “I walked on foot around nine miles.”

With transit shuttered at 7pm Monday, and a city-wide ban on vehicles (except emergency) beginning at 11pm, what Vinsek captures on camera is a desolate but eerily beautiful city. His photos feature unlikely scenes, including a completely empty Grand Central, as well as some wonderful moments of lone souls roaming amidst the city’s dedicated workers pounding the pavement. Vinsek’s photos show another, more peaceful side to our city that we often forget exists.
