Sanitation crews will be out in full force today to continue clearing snow to get New York City up and running again.

The city was hit with the most snow in years — 17.2 inches accumulated in Central Park, Mayor Bill de Blasio said Tuesday.

School buildings will reopen Wednesday, de Blasio said, after being closed on Monday and Tuesday.

COVID-19 vaccine sites were also closed both days and will reopen tomorrow.

Meanwhile, restaurants will be able to serve patrons at their outdoor dining set-ups beginning at 3p.m. today, de Blasio said.

Above-ground subway service, which was suspended yesterday afternoon, is also back up-and-running. However, the MTA warned that there may be residual delays.

Alternate side parking is suspended through Saturday and trash pickup is canceled for today as garbage trucks and Sanitation workers focus on snow removal efforts.

New Yorkers can check when their block was last plowed through the city’s official snow plow tracker.

Op-ed: An urgent call for revising NY’s criminal justice reforms to protect public safety

Apr. 11, 2024 By Council Member Robert Holden

In 2019, the State Legislature and Governor Andrew Cuomo embarked on a controversial overhaul of New York’s criminal justice system by enacting several laws, including cashless bail and sweeping changes to discovery laws. Simultaneously, the New York City Council passed laws that compounded these challenges, notably the elimination of punitive segregation in city jails and qualified immunity for police officers. These actions have collectively undermined public safety and constrained law enforcement effectiveness.
