CASTLE HILL - The snow has stopped falling and the sun even peeked through the clouds a bit Tuesday afternoon, but lots of cleanup remains in the Bronx.

Bronx businesses say the snow is keeping customers away and hurting them financially. 

Osvaldo Martinez, who manages Best Italian Pizza on Third Avenue, says he’s seen business drop 50 percent.

"We're trying to take every dime that we can and function, and stay afloat," says Martinez, who's looking forward to the weather improving and customers returning.
