By Thursday night, Queens found itself atop a list of which its proud residents wanted no part.
The infamous “bomb cyclone” walloped the World’s Borough all day, dumping an average of 11 inches of the white stuff – the most in the city. Some neighborhoods really felt the storm’s wrath: Howard Beach (more than 13 inches); Bayside (12.4 inches); Ozone Park and Middle Village (12.3 inches).
Add wind gusts of 50-60 mph, and teeth-chattering, single-digit temperatures – with real-feel figures hovering around negative 10 degrees – to those snow totals and you have the equation for a truly miserable weekend.
