Road crews clear snow as most commuters stay home
The train station in Downtown Brooklyn -- the borough's busiest -- was mostly empty Tuesday after the threat of snow prompted officials to advise commuters to stay home.
Workers at Barclays Center nearby said they had been out since 8 a.m. shoveling and plowing.
Crews said they were making sure the area was safe by Tuesday evening. Many commuters are expected to resume their routines Wednesday.
The Department of Sanitation continued to clear roads for most of the day, as temperatures began to drop and slush threatened to become ice.
By the evening, roads were mostly clear, but slush remained at many crosswalks.
Some residents said they saw a bright side.
"I thought it was going to be a much bigger blizzard," said Jonah Rowen. "It's just kind of soupy."
