UPDATE 3:30 - From RIOC:
Please be advised that a Winter Storm Warning has been issued for the New York City area. RIOC will be plowing Main Street constantly during the storm as well as making sure the Helix Ramp and bus stops are salted and cleared. The Commons area east of the Subway has been closed off due to recurring icy conditions. Residents are urged to use caution in areas such as the Good Shepherd Plaza, Blackwell House and pathways adjacent to the lawn south of Rivercross, as these areas are known to become icy. RIOC will be working to keep all areas clean for the duration of the storm.

We urge all residents to check in on their elderly and disabled neighbors, to be careful and stay safe throughout the storm. Thank you for your cooperation while necessary preparations for the storm and subsequent snow removal are taking place.
