Leaders in New York and New Jersey defend shutdown for a blizzard that wasn't
from The New York Times
It was an unprecedented step for what became, in New York City, a common storm: For the first time in its 110-year history, the subway system was shut down because of snow. Transit workers, caught off guard by the shutdown that Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo announced, scrambled to grind the network to a halt within hours. Residents moved quickly to find places to stay, if they were expected at work the next day, or hustle home before service was curtailed and roads were closed.
