According to an article from the NY1, New Yorkers are being urged to bundle up as temperatures dip into the single digits. While the city’s fast response to the snow has left most roadways and sidewalks in key areas easier to traverse, the ensuing problem will be icy conditions due to frigid temperatures across the city. This presents dangerous conditions, especially for the elderly who are not as sure-footed while traveling across the city.
“NYC was battered by Winter Storm Janus, as over a foot of snow hit Queens residents this past Tuesday. Conditions have worsened as freezing weather has created icy streets and sidewalks across the five boroughs”, says Asher Frankel, Administrator at Fairview Nursing Care Center. “We encourage senior citizens in and around the Forest Hills area to make their way over to Fairview Nursing Care Center. We are offering free hot cocoa, tea and warm blankets to those looking for refuge from the cold and icy travel conditions.”
