NEW YORK (AP) - New York City looked like a ghost town early Tuesday, covered in a blanket of snow.

The streets around Penn Station in midtown Manhattan were deserted except for a few individuals clearing the sidewalks.

A lone plow truck rumbled down West 34th Street. But the streets were passable. It wasn’t the monster storm that was predicted.

Snow continued to fall with accumulations in Central Park at 6.3 inches at 5 a.m. But it was as high as 10 inches in parts of Queens.

The National Weather Service says the city could see another 1 to 3 inches Tuesday. Winds could gust to 40 mph.

The subway system remains shut down and only emergency vehicles are allowed on the streets.

A blizzard warning remains in effect.
