Uptown Videographer Shoots Ode to Snowy Inwood
INWOOD — An uptown videographer has embraced the snowy winter with a video showcasing scenes of frozen Inwood.
The two-minute video set to meditative music opens with a quote from John Steinbeck: "What good is the warmth of summer without the cold of winter to give it sweetness?"
The video then shows snowy, desolate scenes of the the 207th Street A train station, Inwood Hill Park and the Dyckman Farmhouse Museum.
While many uptowers are wishing for the snow to vanish, Herrera, a 12-year resident of the neighborhood, said he basks in it.
"I'm a fan of the snow," Herrera, 42, said.
"I know it’s tedious for a lot of people, but for me I enjoy it. The way the city quiets down. Everyone has to slow down. I love it."
Herrera, who filmed a 10-minute tribute to Inwood two years ago, said he will release a longer version of "Uptown Frosted" on his Vimeo page later this week.
