Storm targets New York, New Jersey

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Another snow storm targeted New York City and parts of the tristate region on Tuesday. Snow mixed with rain for the morning commute and switched to all rain in the afternoon.

New York City was forecasted to receive 2-4 inches of snow.

The city issued a snow alert that began at 3 a.m. Tuesday.  The preparation included the sanitation and transportation departments, along with the Office of Emergency Management.

Eastern Long Island was looking at about 1-2 inches of snow. 

NJ Transit was cross-honoring tickets across all of its modes of transit all day Tuesday.

Alternate side parking was suspended all week until Feb. 22 in order to help facilitate snow removal and trash pickup.

The good news is that temperatures were expected to rise on Wednesday for several days.  The bad news is that all of that melting snow will have to go somewhere.

    From coffee shops in Brooklyn to restaurants in Manhattan, we find speakeasies standing out by blending in. When people in Bushwick want a green machine juice blend they visit Leticia Castillo's Owl Juice Pub. But first they must find the owl. "We been doing fine without a sign," Castillo says.

    Only 10 percent of people who get CPR from a bystander actually survive. But two young men in Westchester County have now patented a device that could dramatically increase those odds and save lives. John and Chris DiCapua's sitting room in their parents' Westchester County home has had a unique guest lying around for quite a while now: a CPR dummy. What began as an idea from their time as Boy Scouts is now a device that could potentially save lives.

    A jury took only about 90 minutes Tuesday to convict former New York City Councilman Daniel Halloran of bribery charges in a scheme to buy a spot on the mayoral ballot for state Sen. Malcolm Smith. Halloran was also found guilty of taking payoffs from what he thought were developers who wanted him to funnel city money their way. The men were actually an FBI agent and an FBI informant.
