Black and White Photos From the 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. 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, as another major winter storm again approaches the Northeast, remembers the Great Blizzard of 1947 with some photos that ran in LIFE, and many others that were never published in the magazine.
