Dog Devours 'Delicious Snow' as Cleanup Gets Underway in Brooklyn

Light snow continued to fall over New York City on the afternoon of Tuesday, February 2, as authorities worked to clear snow and salt roads following the arrival of major winter storm the day before.

In the north Brooklyn neighborhood of Greenpoint, plows were clearing roadways while local residents ventured out to enjoy the fresh snow. Among those residents was a dog called Jasper, who was eagerly devouring snow and ice at WNYC Transmitter Park, next to the East River.

The National Weather Service (NWS) said at 2 pm that “bands of precipitation spiralling around the offshore storm system” were producing the light snow seen in this footage.

According to snow totals released by the NWS on Tuesday morning, more than 17 inches of snow fell in Manhattan’s Central Park, while up to 16 inches was recorded in parts of Brooklyn. However, of the city’s five boroughs, the Bronx saw the heaviest snowfall, with 19 inches reported in East Tremont by 8.15 am. Credit: Rob McDonagh via Storyful
