Residents commute in freezing cold after storm

CANARSIE -

Brooklyn residents struggled to move about the frozen borough Friday after a winter storm left the region covered with snow and ice.

Arctic air chill didn't make commuting to school and work any easier just a day after a major snowstorm hit Brooklyn.

Commuters are facing very cold wind chills and mounds of frozen snow.

Still, somehow, residents say they are doing what New Yorkers do best in a time when things don't really seem so bright.

"We're New Yorkers," one woman says. "We just need to help each other through this that's all we can do."

A wind chill advisory remains in effect until 10 a.m. Saturday, according to the National Weather Service.

The bitter cold temperatures are the coldest the city has experienced since 1994, according to News 12 meteorologists.

The weekend is expected to be even colder while temperatures warm back up Monday.
