It took New York City many days to recover and a bit longer to fully recover from this event. Families morned over the deaths of 400 people. 17,000 people hand shoveled 24 million cubic yard from streets due to lack of snow plows. Also, immigrant workers removed snow from railroads in New Jersey and New York.
