Photos: Nor’easter blankets southern Brooklyn in snow

Like the rest of New York City, Brooklyn was blanketed in inches of powder during this week’s nor’easter.

Despite high winds, bitter cold and multiple warnings from city officials to stay indoors and off the roads, many Brooklynites took to the streets Tuesday, either to play — or to try and dig out their cars.

Parts of the city saw more than a foot of snow as early as Monday morning. As of Tuesday, southern Brooklyn neighborhoods like Bay Ridge had clocked upward of 18 inches of snow, according to the National Weather Service. The night before, more than 16 inches of snow had fallen in Coney Island, the Service said.

While schools opened for in-person classes on Wednesday, alternate side parking remains suspended until Saturday as the Sanitation Department continues work to clear the streets.
