One day after a mighty blizzard blasted New York City with several inches of snow — some in Queens got a foot — untold numbers of New Yorkers ran to their favorite hills to enjoy a day of sledding.
To mark the occasion, Mayor Eric Adams listed some of his favorite spots to slide down freshly packed snow.
In a series of tweets posted Sunday, the new mayor made sure to list a handful of hills in each of the five boroughs. And as the former president of a certain borough, he may have called out Brooklyn as the "best" one for sledding.
"Wherever you hit the hills today, bundle up, be safe and have fun!" Adams tweeted.
