NEW YORK — Parts of eastern Long Island are digging out from a foot-and-a-half of snow.

The National Weather Service has reports of over 19 inches in Bay Shore and Patchogue (PACH’-awg.)

The Long Island Rail Road says its personnel worked through the night to clear rails of snow and ice but riders still need to allow extra time on Thursday.

In New York City, the weather service says there’s over 13 inches in Little Neck, Queens; 10 inches in Manhattan’s Grammercy Park; and about 8 inches in Central Park.

In Westchester County, over 10 inches has been reported in White Plains.

Metro-North railroad has resumed regular weekday service, though it’s had some weather-related delays.

The area’s airports are lumbering back into service.
