Snow in the Berlin neighborhood where I live
(North Neukölln, December 2123, 2010)
This winter in Berlin it has been snowing since exceptionally early, in exceptionally
bountiful quantity, and with exceptional consistency. The snow-plowing and road clearance
services have been doing a great job keeping the main traffic streets continuously clear.
But in the smaller streets it was a losing battle, with snow coming in faster than it could
To have a record of this experience, and give you an idea of the situation,
here are some photos I made these days in the neighborhood where I live, the area around Reuterplatz
in North Neukölln. You will recognize the apartment building in the Nansenstraße where I
live by its unique vermillion color (see on the right right).
To get an idea of the slip quality of the snowed road, see kid on sleigh
being pulled by Mom (picture 1, below).
