DUMBO's Snow-Clogged Streets Rated "Secondary" by NYC

PlowNYC Designation Map
Did you wonder why there was so much yucky gray snow on the streets of DUMBO long after other Brooklyn streets were plowed? Here's the answer: The PlowNYC snow removal designation map shows that NYC rates just about all of DUMBO's streets "secondary." (They are in blue; primary streets are shown in red.)

That means DUMBO gets plowed only after the primary streets are plowed.
