The New York City Department of Sanitation on Monday issued a snow alert starting at 4 p.m. Monday. 
With the incoming winter weather mix of snow and rain tonight and into tomorrow, DSNY released a warning to city residents. 
For local business Big Brothers Hardware Store, spring items had been flying off of the shelves more than winter ones. Now, though, the owner says that he sold his first bag of salt in over a month.  
The Department of Sanitation says everything is in place for the storm, with a full fleet of 700 salt spreaders already in position and 2,000 snowplows ready to hit the streets.
Alternate side parking regulations will be suspended for Feb. 28.
DSNY wants to remind residents and restaurant owners they should not push snow into the street, including bike lanes, and that a 4-foot clear path should be made on sidewalks.
If you are looking to pick up supplies, it's best to go as soon as possible. The Department of Emergency Management issued a travel advisory for Monday night, urging New Yorkers to be extremely cautious on the road and take public transit if needed. 
The alert will be in effect through 9 a.m. Tuesday.
