New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (L) speaks at a news conference after greeting and thanking New York City Fire Department Emergency Services (EMS) workers and first responders following a major winter storm in the Brooklyn borough of New York City, January 22, 2014. Tuesday's snow storm was the second major storm to hit New York since de Blasio took office on January 1. The northeastern United States on Wednesday dug out from a storm that dumped over a foot of snow in many places with frigid, windy weather keeping some schools and offices closed and flights canceled.
