So Winter Storm Stella didn’t turn out to be the blizzard of epic proportions that weather forecasters projected but it’s still a pretty gross day thanks to the wintry mix of rain, slush, and high winds. This morning the National Weather Service downgraded the storm’s status and is predicting just four to six inches of accumulation.

As always, some New Yorkers saw the storm as another chance to capture photos of the city in winter wonderland mode. From bird’s eye views to images captured while walking in the park, there was plenty of opportunity to snag some breathtaking photos, given one was brave enough to disregard Mayor Bill de Blasio’s warning to stay inside. And so here it is, we’ve gathered some of the prettiest storm photos spotted on Instagram. As we endure what remains of this messy day, just remember: spring is right around the corner. Until then, stay safe!

The Brooklyn Bridge is always a great spot to snap a picture, no matter what the weather is.

As is Central Park.

What better way to promote One57 than to promote the views during a snow day?

The Flatiron Building is even more stunning when it’s blanketed in snow.
