BROOKLYN - Brooklyn residents have been digging out following the historic blizzard over the weekend.

City officials are urging residents to refrain from shoveling snow into roadways and sidewalks so as to not undo the work of city's sanitation department.

However, city officials say placing discarded shoveled snow close to the curb is OK.

Some Brooklyn residents say they are frustrated with the way the city handled snow cleanup in their communities. 

Mayor Bill de Blasio says New Yorkers should let Mother Nature do its work as forecasters expect the snow to melt away later this week. 

The mayor says the warmer temperatures should melt a majority of the snow and free cars that are trapped.
