Gallery: Chinatown’s giant snowman is back!

Word on the street yesterday though was that two blue tarps were covering both His Frostiness and Frosty Jr. to protect the from the rain so they might not be around for too much longer.

Inhabitat editor and LES snowman neighbor Jill Fehrenbacher said: “I am so thrilled to see the big carrot-nosed guy back on the corner! We missed him until now since we didn’t have much snow, but it was with happy tidings that we welcomed His Frostiness back to the corner of Essex and Canal, just in time for the Chinese New Year holiday.”

Even though we’re kind of tired of being cold, we’re willing to brave the frigid temps a while longer so that downtown NYC’s favorite man of snow can stick around.
