**LIVE UPDATE: The NYC Department of Sanitation has issued a Snow Alert for Wednesday, March 21st.**

  • NYC schools are closed Wednesday, March 21st. 
  • Alternate side parking rules are suspended for March 21st and March 22nd.
  • The Department of Sanitation is pre-deploying 693 salt spreaders and dispatch nearly 1600 plows to handle snow removal operations. 

It's no secret that storms, blizzards and hurricanes can all be dangerous and a nuisance. Fortunately, the City is always hard at work preparing for even the worst winter weather. Here's a few tips and resources for staying safe and being prepared:
