We’re getting some photos of the storm aftermath and they ain’t pretty. Corners are a slushy-icy mess and people are struggling to get across the street in an upright position.
At several stores, including Talbot’s, Aldo’s and Victoria’s Secret, Naomi Davies wrote in to say that the owners had not cleared the snow, which is their responsibility. The West side of Broadway between 100th and 101st was “a sheet of ice” on Wednesday morning, according to Rabbi Sari Laufer.
But luckily, some stores seemed to be responsive. Naomi wrote to Talbot’s about the ice, pictured above, and they got it cleared within 10 minutes.
Outside PS 452 at 76th and Columbus, the street was also blockaded by snow, “forcing the children to walk around the wall into the street,” according to the tipster who sent in the photo below. She said 311 told her the Department of Sanitation couldn’t clear the area for at least 72 hours after the snow. We reached out to the Department of Education and they said they’ll take care of it on Thursday.
Other streets were also a mess:

And Rosenthal let 311 know:

The entrance to Riverside Park at 78th Street was also treacherous as of Thursday morning, one tipster tells us.
Report a messy street to 311 here.
