NYC struggling to clean up after blizzard
New York City is struggling with the after-effects of the blizzard that dumped two feet of snow on the five boroughs.
Stranded buses and abandoned cars are clogging up many roadways, preventing plows from clearing the mounds of snow.
Commuters say they?re growing frustrated with the city?s crippled mass transit systems. Delays and cancellations are still plaguing subway lines, trains, buses and airports.
Officials say the unplowed roads are also impeding emergency efforts as ambulances and fire trucks are having trouble getting to their destinations speedily.
At a news conference yesterday, Mayor Michael Bloomberg addressed the complaints and concerns, saying the city needs to work together to get out from under the snowy mess.
Main streets clear; sidewalks and side streets still buried
