NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — As another snowstorm struck New York City Monday, residents of Staten Island complained about dangerous and unplowed streets – following similar complaints on the Upper East Side after a Jan. 21 snowstorm.
While busy Bard Avenue was plowed after CBS 2 confronted officials about it, some side streets remained unplowed late into the night.
The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for New York City, Long Island and much of northern New Jersey that expired at 7 p.m. The snow continued in the city until finally stopping after nightfall.
The snowfall topped out at 8 inches in Central Park — a record for the day, CBS 2 Weather reported.
A total of 8 inches of snow were also seen on Pelham Parkway in the Bronx, and in Marine Park, Brooklyn. Centerport, Long Island saw a total of 9.9 inches, 1010 WINS reported.
And a winter storm watch already has been issued preemptively for the area for late Tuesday night through Wednesday morning. A total of 10 inches of snow and up to 0.1 inches of ice could be seen in some areas for the Wednesday morning commute.
“Things are going to be messy today,” Mayor Bill de Blasio said at a news conference Monday afternoon. “Snow is coming down faster than we can plow it, we have a very aggressive plowing operation going on, but the snow is coming down very rapidly.”
