Blizzard Turns NYC Into Snowboarder’s Paradise

When it comes to snowboarding destinations, New York City isn’t at the top of the directory.

In fact, it generally doesn’t build the listing at all.

That all changed with the blizzard this weekend when viral video producer Casey Neistat passed the snowy streets into his own snowboarding track.

For part of the video he was joined by skier Oscar Boyson, and the pair zipped through Times Square 😛 TAGEND

The clip begins with brand-new footage of Mayor Bill de Blasio warns that anyone out driving in the blizzard would be subject to arrest.( Although a making-of video mentions they started filming about an hour before the travel forbid kicked in ).

At one point, the Jeep towing Neistat was pulled over by the police for the purposes of an “only in New York” moment.

Check it out in the time above, then watch the “behind-the-scenes” video to see how it was obligated.
