On December 16, 2020 while on the beach in Los Angeles with my wife and two kids, we FaceTimed a couple friends and family members back East. You know, they say that the grass is always greener on the other side and it’s so true. They were jealous of our 70F weather and we were envious of their snow-covered streets.

They’re getting a huge snowstorm this week (over a foot of snow). Growing up in Connecticut, there was nothing better than a huge storm … as long as you didn’t have to travel and you had warm, dry clothes on as well as electricity. Especially the week before Christmas!

But after a couple of days of the cold, the novelty wears off, so I’m happy to be in L.A. Besides we have cold, snowy mountains just 90 minutes away.

New York City Live Webcams
But If you want to see New York City covered in snow even when you can’t be there, then check out these live webcams. Or if it’s summertime, you can see why they call the Big Apple, “the city that never sleeps.”

You might not be able to visit in person but at least you can get there virtually.

Times Square
This camera is situated in the heart of Times Square (one of my least favorite places to visit since it’s so touristy) but it’s still fun to see all the action. You can even hear the sound.

Brooklyn Bridge
The Brooklyn Bridge is arguably one of the most famous bridges in the world. This live stream comes from the top of the St. George Tower in Brooklyn so you can see NYC, Manhattan and the Brooklyn Bridge.

5th Avenue
This camera is brought to you by EarthCam and their affiliate, TGI Friday’s. It shows sweeping views of world- famous 5th Avenue in New York City and users can even move the camera and hear what’s happening on one of the most well-known streets in the world.

NYC Traffic Cams
These cameras are small but they’re still fun to play around with. Just tick which cameras you want to view then scroll to the bottom and click “view.” There are dozens from each of the five boroughs.
