Bronx residents find it difficult to get around after blizzard
Many Bronx residents found it difficult to get around Sunday after the first blizzard of 2005 hit.
Residents woke up to find their cars buried in snow and the roads covered in ice. Sanitation trucks were out plowing and salting main streets and expressways. Many Bronx residents were out shoveling their sidewalks. The city mandates that all snow be removed four hours after the snow stops falling.
Meanwhile, the city has suspended alternative side parking regulations until Tuesday to make snow removal easier. The blizzard also prompted the city to declare a snow emergency, which means standing and parking on over 200 snow emergency streets is prohibited.
