Nile Rodgers is tweeting incredible photos of deserted New York from his apartment window


LAST NIGHT AND this morning, large parts of the US east coast – including New York City - have been battered by the worst snowstorm in years.

Nile Rodgers – of Chic and Get Lucky fame – is in the middle of it all, looking out of his apartment window.

His tweets have been reposted hundreds of times… even on this side of the water.

And he’s still enjoying himself.
