Low Priority Neighborhoods?

Yesterday I shared a link to Earthcam’s stream of Times Square in Manhattan.  If nothing else, I thought people would be curious about how the snowfall was affecting a section of NYC which many of us have visited.

Times Square was fairly well-maintained during the storm, and after the road travel ban went into effect people were walking in the traffic lanes.  The webcam stream gave the impression that agencies operating snow plows and smaller tools had the matter under control while the snow was still falling.  That was what we saw on camera, in Midtown Manhattan.

The photograph below was shared on Twitter by a local journalist early this afternoon (EST).  It reflects reality in a densely populated section of Queens which doesn’t call much national attention to itself.

I’ll just leave you with the photo.  Draw your own conclusions.

Postscript:  In fairness, we should admit the cleanup effort is understaffed.  A link below offers temporary work to strong people who can help.  Please share the link if you know people who are qualified.
