Mayor de Blasio admitted on Sunday that Queens had not yet received adequate help from the city to dig out from the snow left piled by Winter Storm Jonas.
Many neighborhoods in Queens, which received up to 34 inches of snow, the most in New York City, were still largely impassable due to the lingering accumulation left by this weekend’s blizzard, the New York Post reported. De Blasio said equipment and workers were being sent from other boroughs to help.
“The streets I saw in Sunnyside, Woodside, I’m not going to be happy this morning. I’m not going to be satisfied this morning. But I can tell you this much: Give us the rest of this day and we’re going to make a very, very big impact on those neighborhoods,” the mayor was quoted by NBC.
