AFTER THE FIRST BLIZZARD

View through branches toward the Dyckman farmhouse. Built in 1784 and coverted to a museum in 1916, the Dyckman farmouse is the oldest existing farmhouse in Manhattan.

. . . During my last winter in New York, I lived in a one bedroom apartment adjacent to the Dyckman Farmhouse grounds. Throughout the summer months a tree canopy obscured the view but by mid-October the trees had surrendered their leaves providing a kitchen window prospect through trunks and branches onto a boxwood parterre and a white clapboard farmhouse with a stone foundation. After the first blizzard, the wind welded the snowfall to the branchery, transforming it into a jagged crystal screen.
