The day after yesterday: photos of what the blizzard left behind in Brooklyn
Major winter storms are nothing to take likely, especially now that they have names, but Friday night's storm turned out to be a mostly innocuous visitor to New York City. Most of our electrical infrastructure is underground, so as long as the City does its job (and it did), a blizzard here is more like a day of forced laziness than a cataclysm (flooding is another story, obviously).
Parts of Long Island and the northeast have had a long weekend, but here in my corner of Brooklyn, things went back to normal quickly. By the time I got outside with my camera, life was pretty much back to normal.

Plows were out in force shortly after the first flakes fell and didn't stop until after the storm had passed.

Some New Yorkers have not ventured out yet.
When you've gotta go, you've gotta go.
Widespread sledding swept the five boroughs as soon as snow started to accumulate.
In New York, everyone is responsible for their own bit of sidewalk.
Not just a suggestion.
When there's been a snowstorm, the day after yesterday is usually pretty nice.
