Stella may have been a disappointment to those who were hoping for an out-and-out blizzard, but plenty of folks made the best of it– East Village mainstay Zum Schneider even built a snow bar, as you can see here. That’s the spirit. Here now are the best of the rest, starting with a “Bushwick hipster snowman.”

Happy snow day from me and my hipster Bushwick snowman
