Location: Manhattan, NY
December 30, 2010

With New Year’s Eve only a day away, city workers were furiously plowing massive piles of snow in an attempts to clean the streets and sidewalk from 55th Street to Times Square in Midtown Thursday morning December 30 2010 Nearly a million people from around the globe are expected to gather in Times Square for the ball drop tomorrow, days after close to two feet of snow fell in Manhattan. The city is coming under heavy criticism for its mishandling of post-blizzard snow cleanup, but the workers clearing the streets in midtown Thursday appeared to have unlimited resources at their disposal, assigning multiple plows and front loaders to each block of Seventh Avenue between 55th Street and Times Square. The avenue was closed to traffic for hours during rush hour by police vehicles and unmarked vans, and there were dump trucks parked on every block to cart away the snow.
