BROOKLYN - Some Brooklyn residents said they're outraged with the slow reaction time as the borough struggles to clean up the snow dumped by yesterday's blizzard.

Many roadways weren't plowed yet, which made it hard for residents to get back to their daily routines. Stuck cars and buses jammed up streets and many of the city?s subway lines were also affected.

City Councilman James Vacca said the fact that many streets hadn?t seen a single plow yet was unacceptable. Assemblyman Dov Hikind (D-Brooklyn) said he?s calling for the resignation of the sanitation department?s commissioner because of the way the cleanup has been handled.

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said that abandoned cars are preventing the plows from doing their jobs.
