BROOKLYN - Side streets in Brooklyn were blanketed with snow Friday morning.

Residents must clear the snow and ice from sidewalks within four hours after snowfall has stopped.

If the snow becomes frozen and too hard to remove, unused cat litter, salt, sand or sawdust can be spread to help with the cleanup.

Authorities also ask that residents not throw snow into the street and not cover fire hydrants.
