Article and pictures (of people falling)

-The mayor is accused of class warfare by residents of the Upper East Side after snow was not clear hours later
-The street the mayor lives on in Park Slope was cleared on Tuesday

I can attest when I was walking on UES this afternon I nearly fell. Never in previous snow storms. The streets were in total mess. I didn't have the perspective, though

This is muchado about nothing....the streets were no better or worse than prior snowstorms. As usual, gotta sell those papers and get your name/face on the news.

All hype.

PS-Al Roker should spend his time talking about gastric bypass surgery and the weather. His opinions on any other topic are useless and unwanted.

Agreed. His fat ass was too lazy and weak to lose the weight through diet and exercise.

He's a MAN. Once men get on an exercise program they lose weight super quick. Much more faster than women.

DeBlasio's only been in office for a couple of weeks.

Roker's pathetic with his roly poly self.

Guess Mr. Roker who lives on the UES was stuck in all that traffic on Second Avenue yesterday! *LOL*

Will say from all the noise it appeared things were a mess out there yesterday, but one planned ahead and simply remained indoors.

On GMA this morning both Mr. Roker and Sam Champion were chatting about NYC weather, neither seemed too upset over whatever issues that are provoking the former.

You mean like when the local news keeps repeating the same footage of deblasio shoveling his front steps?

It was more than just the snow. There were no traffic agents or cops out there to control the gridlock. Trucks and busses" blocked the box" and there was nobody to manage the mess.

Try living in the real snow belt. Those pictures of people falling are ridiculous. Watch where you are walking. People in NYC are so weak and so used to being nannied that they can't even walk down the street without nanny wiping down the path in front of them.
