Brooklyn residents braved freezing temperatures and gusty winds on Tuesday.
Anyone venturing outdoors this week is advised to bundle up with layers.
NYC Emergency Management recommends staying indoors as much as possible to avoid the frigid wind, and to also check in on neighbors who are elderly or have disabilities.
A Code Blue weather emergency notice has been issued, meaning that no one who is homeless and trying to find a warm place to stay can be turned away from a shelter.
Temperatures Wednesday are expected to reach highs around 24 degrees.
