Blizzard 2016

Newark was hit with more than two feet of snow. Please let us know about the City of Newark's response to the storm. Let us know what street you live on, what time it was plowed and whether it is passable now. We'll forward any complaints about streets not being plowed directly to administration of Mayor Ras Baraka. We'll compile this information so we know what the problems areas are for the next storm and work with the administration to better address these areas.

    I live on North 6th and cars cannot even drive down my block without getting stuck, the plows passed by once but did bare minimum on the roads ! Its impossible to drive anywhere, i missed work because the only way I can get to my job is by driving but I can’t even drive down my block without getting stuck.

    I can’t comprehend why the city of Newark is always behind. This blizzad was foreseen yet somehow the city of Newark wasn’t prepared. Other near by towns are cleaned.

    I live on N 11th St and it is horrible. People are being stuck trying to come home/go to work. As an essential personnel at a hospital, I couldn’t make it to work which means I wasn’t paid for the day. This is absurd. PLEASE PLOW IMMEDIATELY!

    It is Monday 1.25.16 and the snow plow still hasn’t passed by. Cars are unable to leave their spots due to the snow. Live in Parker Street, Newark, NJ. In bloomfield ave, the buses don’t stop where people are waiting to go to work. My neighbor waited 90 minutes until returning back home, because buses just passed by.

    Badger ave between meeker and watson never done. In fact truck number 71 drove.past 7 times.and never stopped. This is not the first time it has ever snowed in newark. What was the plan to leave us all stranded???? Like.u have. I drove through hillside. Cranford roselle westfield Garwood plainfield.and north plan field and this town is the only tragedy. Come on to keep.asking the residents for help. Please the city has the snow.plows we don’t. Next it will be tickets for the parking spaces we.have found. Give me a break. This is plain stupidity.

    This blizzard was by far the worst one but for the city not to come and clean out street and beeing stuck in your house is just ridiculous and un believable I can’t believe this and to make is worse I live behind a school this is absurd.

    I live in the West ward on Pinegrove Terr. I only can speak to what I see and all I see is this block has not been touch. I was born here, raised here, brought my home here and can’t remember having to wait this long for our snow to be plowed. By what is see in my limited world I would give the city a F please send a truck our way. Held hostage by the City.

    I live on North 12 st and the street hasn’t been plowed at all. The street is very difficult to maneuver on since the snow is piled up, but there are sections that plummet down since the residents have dug out cars.

    I live on Pinegrove terrace and No plow truck has been through this block. They came through West End right around the corner. I work in a hospital and need to get to work. I made an attempt to get out. Got stuck and hit my damn car trying to get back in my driveway up against the fence I am beyond livid. I know Rome wasn’t built in a day but since the schools are closed and the streets are still full if 2 feet of snow THE STATE OF EMERGENCY SHOULD STILL BE ENFORCED! Where can we go. Employers got us by the neck withholding our pay because we can’t get to work. It’s a Damn shame. But I gotta pay my taxes Feb 1st.

    Broad street & oriental street. Newark housing authority complex. Residents are heated because no one came to remove the snow off the street and parking lot people have jobs and places they need to be.

    I live on South 13th street and there has not been a snow plow through here yet. I was hoping to be able to get to work this morning, the snow plow tracker is great….until you realize that your area of the city hasn’t been addressed.

    I love in North newark on woodside place. No one has bothered to come thru this street. All the cars are stuck. No one can get to work or even go to the store. I have 2 children and if any emergency were to happen no emergency vehicles would be able to even get to the corner of my house. I’m about to lose my job because other towns have done better cleaning than this.
