Mayor de Blasio, Not in Bermuda, Reacts Quickly to Clear Upper East Side Streets of Snow

Residents of Brooklyn and Queens played the world's saddest song on the world's smallest violin when residents of the Upper East Side of Manhattan complained after Tuesday's storm that their streets weren't cleared of snow as quickly as they would have liked.

Mayor Bill de Blasio, not in Bermuda during the city's big storm, ran over to the neighborhood on Wednesday and personally inspected the scene of the crime. He then ordered extra plows to the area and made sure the streets were clear.

“After inspecting the area and listening to concerns from residents earlier today, I determined more could have been done to serve the Upper East Side,” he said. “Our crews will remain on the streets around the clock until the roadways are clear in every neighborhood, in every borough, across New York City.”

Thanks goodness we have a Mayor who stays in the city during snowstorms to get the job done!
