Slush-Filled Streets Greet New Yorkers Day After Storm

By  Amy Langfield and Aidan Gardiner | March 15, 2017 8:34am 

NEW YORK — New Yorkers slipped, slid and puddle-hopped their way to work and school Wednesday morning after Tuesday's snowstorm left subways, buses and trains running with delays and the region began to dig out from up to 10 inches of snow.

Most subways were running normally, but buses were experiencing delays nearly across the board. 

Residual delays continued into Wednesday as southbound N trains began running local in sections once again due to the NYCT Cold Weather Plan Operations, according to the MTA's website. For the latest, see the MTA's Service Advisory page.

The Staten Island Ferry, SeaStreak and NY Waterway  were running normally, while the East River Ferry was running on a modified schedule.

Citi Bike was still suspended after the storm.

After a midday shutdown during the storm, Metro-North on Wednesday said it will operate on a modified weekday schedule. "Customers should expect crowded conditions and train delays," the MTA warned.

LIRR was running normally, but Amtrak was running on a modified schedule.

Alternate Side Parking rules will remain suspended through Saturday for snow removal operations but meters remain in effect, according to the Department of Transportation.

Across the city there were numerous reports of isolated power outages — nearly 300 homes as of 8:20 a.m. — and manhole fires, as is often the case after big storms.

Area airports continued to catch up after the storm, with FlightAware tracking 231 cancelations Wednesday at LaGuardia, 70 at JFK and 179 at Newark.

The Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island reopened after closing for the storm and cleanup.
