Video, 1:03 p.m., Newkirk and Westminster avenues: "Unplowed side streets keeping BK residents from work"
Some Brooklyn residents are still snowed in as unplowed side streets have prevented them from digging out their cars.
Some who had to show up for work this morning say they had to commute on foot because some unplowed streets just weren’t drivable. Other residents say their streets are still barely even walkable.
Coney Island Avenue is jammed up with abandoned cabs, cars and a coach bus. Vince Vivona, who lives on Newkirk Avenue, said the heavy snow was no match for even a plow: it got stuck in front of his home for hours.
Many residents say they feel short-changed by the borough's snow removal efforts.
