It may not have been an "important" story, but what news channel would pass up the opportunity to get a man-on-the-street interview Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler and his daughter Mia during Winter Storm Jonas coverage? As people who are not from New York might say, "Only in New York!" (No one in New York says this.) The city's streets were shut down to vehicles at 2:30 pm on Saturday, turning the island of Manhattan into a snowy pedestrian wonderland, which is presumably what lured the craggly rocker and his artist daughter outside, where they decided to take part in such classic NYC activities as snow angels and being interviewed by the national news media. The best part of this, though, is when the mega celebrity waves hello to his grandson like a guy who's never been on TV before.
Guess he didn't want to miss a thing about Winter Storm Jonas.
