DEIMOS-2 Image of the Week (acquired 24/02/2015): New York City, USA

This image shows a snow and ice covered Midtown Manhattan, New York City, during the bitter cold wave that affected the Big Apple on February 2015. 
Millions of people were touched by the extreme cold weather in the eastern United States on February. The temperatures were frigid enough in New York City and Washington to break decades-old record lows on February 20. 
Located at the mouth of the Hudson River, on the edges of a natural harbor, much of the city itself is built on the three islands of Manhattan, Long Island and Staten Island. With easy access to the Atlantic Ocean, the city is one of the major ports on our planet.
