Reporting Kathryn Brown
NEW YORK (CBS 2) — On Friday, the second winter storm to blow into the City in a week turned some streets into skating rinks and avenues into rivers of slush, Kathryn Brown reports.
“Like ice. Not in all cases. It’s not that slippery, but it’s slippery,” one pedestrian said.
“The roads are terrible. Very slippery,” one driver said.
For some commuters, like Brian Lien, the ride was literally a mess. “The bike lanes aren’t plowed unfortunately, so I think maybe it would be a little less dangerous if they were plowed,” he said.
Most of the morning was dedicated to clearing the walkways. “It’s getting a little cold and real slippery out here so I’m putting down more salt than usual,” said Eddie Graham of the West Village.
With the arrival of the fifth snowstorm in just four weeks, some were embracing the winter weather. “What are you going to do? It’s winter,” shrugged Delon Edwards of Queens Village.
For many, however, fatigue has already set in, along with a little prayer for an early spring. “Let’s wait for Groundhog Day,” West Village resident Ilene Robert laughed.
