Bronx residents dig out after snowstorm slams region

Commuters were forced to navigate through icy sidewalks and piles of snow as the Bronx faced bitter cold temperatures on Friday. 



Residents in Pelham Bay say sidewalks in the area are still icy and dangerous. They say even though they did see plows pass by, the streets were also still icy.



The Bronx neighborhood received about 11 inches of snow during Thursday's major storm which closed all New York City public schools. 



New York City Comptroller Scott Stringer says the average cost per inch to clean up the snow is estimated at almost $2 million. 



Homeowners are responsible for cleaning the sidewalks in front of their residence and business owners are responsible for the sidewalks in front of their establishments.



If there is a sidewalk along city property or a subway station that still needs to be tended to, residents can call 311.
