SOUNDVIEW - Workers in the Bronx who have no choice but to work in the bitter cold say they're handling things well since they know how to prepare for the frigid conditions.

Parks Department employees out picking up Christmas trees left on the curb say they're not suffering too much. One worker said he's been doing this for more than 25 years and knows what to expect and how many layers to wear.

A food deliveryman told News 12 he wore six layers today, leaving only his eyes uncovered as he delivered food in Fordham.
