Hell’s Kitchen was bracing itself this morning for one of New York’s biggest snowstorms. Weather forecasters are predicting that 1-2 inches per hour will fall throughout the day and into tomorrow. At times winds will gust up to 40 miles per hour, bringing near-blizzard conditions.

The Department of Sanitation and the Subway are moving — but non-essential Nissans are banned from New York streets.

Mayor Bill de Blasio added to yesterday’s restrictions by issuing a State of Emergency until 6am tomorrow morning (Tuesday) that restricts all vehicles on New York City roads except for essential and emergency travel.

We took a look at sunrise this morning at the state of the roads and sidewalks in the area.
