Everyone's Enjoying An Empty New York City In These Snowstorm Photos

Even the pets.

A major snowstorm is making its way through New York and Maine on Thursday with an expected 8 to 12 inches of snow in the New York region alone.

As inconvenient as it may be, the whiteout makes for beautiful photos of an eerily quiet New York City.

Photos on social networks show major tourist destinations like Times Square empty and animals enjoying some free time in the deep snow.
