WILLIAMSBRIDGE - Residents and business owners in Williamsbridge say some side streets in their neighborhood were neglected by city plows, despite Mayor de Blasio's praise of the Sanitation Department for its plowing efforts.

Cars driving down East 227th Street had to go slowly and some got stuck as the street was still covered in snow and slush Wednesday. On the city's Plow NYC app, the street was marked as having been recently serviced. 

"They've been plowing the main streets here quite a bit," says Jim Alston, from McCall's Bronxwood Funeral Home. "But the side streets, they need a little more attention."

Overnight temperatures will fall into the 20s, meaning snow and slush in the road will freeze.
