What do you get when the weather outside turns a balmy 50 degrees (for New York in January) and the river temperature hovers somewhere in the low 40s?
A foggy spectacle is what.
Yesterday those exact conditions along the Hudson River created a rare effect: a thick fog rolling across the water, shrouding, then revealing, passing boats and the boxy New Jersey skyline beyond.
A smattering of people who happened to be walking along the fog-covered West Harlem Piers yesterday afternoon stopped, stared in amazement, then took a picture–or five.
These are some of The Curious Uptowner's own snapshots from the afternoon.
