A long streak of days without homicides in New York City may have been broken Friday morning, but many were still relieved at that the brutal cold coincided with less brutal behavior.
The brutal cold snap Monday night was hitting residents hard on Staten Island, as they continue to struggle more than two months after Superstorm Sandy.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg on Saturday urged everyone who might need shelter to seek it out as the temperature drops, and slammed the Long Island Power Authority for not attending more promptly to outages in the Rockaways.
As if the cleanup weren’t bad enough, the New York Metro area was dealing with cold conditions – while many residents had no electricity.
The unseasonably cold temperatures blew into our area over the weekend. Snow flurries fell off and on Monday and continued through the night, getting some into the holiday spirit.
