A windy, slushy Union Square in 1892

Frederick Childe Hassam’s “Winter in Union Square,” painted from 17th Street near Hassam’s studio, kind of resembles what Union Square looked like on Saturday.

Hassam frequently depicted New York streets in severe weather, like this one of pedestrians battling rain in Union Square.

    I’m a Hassam fan too. He manages to make his streetscapes feel very intimate.
