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

In fact, it generally doesn’t make the list at all.

That all changed with the blizzard this weekend when viral video maker Casey Neistat turned the snowy streets into his own snowboarding course.

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

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

Check it out in the clip below, then watch the “behind-the-scenes” video to see how it was made:
