it would be nice if the photograph for this story were even slightly more visually compelling.
it's new york, after all.
isn't there anyone out there willing to take some visually interesting images for wnyc?

The #6 trains have been a mess! There is no express service. All trains are running local and of course are very crowded. I gave up on going to work today after letting four crowded trains go by. An announcement said the next train would not arrive for another 18 minutes ! No doubt that train would have been insanely crowded. Can't stand around all day trying to catch a train .

It's okay to keep the schools open, but EVERYONE needs nice high galoshes to navigate the slush puddles.

DEPARTMENT OF SANITATION: Please don't plow snow over the storm drains. When the storm drains are blocked, we get slush puddles (ponds, lakes) around corners and down the block and people can't cross the street or get up onto the sidewalks. It's 2014 - how come you don't know this yet?
