Great Blizzard in New York City, December 1947
In December 1947, a huge, historic storm dumped record levels of snow on the Northeastern United States. They had primitive forecasting back then, too, so it was quite unexpected to many people. In New York City, where the snow fell quietly, and steadily, for hours and hours, several LIFE photographers stepped out of the magazine’s offices, cameras in hand, and recorded the scene. Here, LIFE.com remembers the Great Blizzard of 1947 with some photos that ran in LIFE, and many others that were never published in the magazine.
