Mayor Bill de Blasio said alternate side parking regulations will be suspended through Feb. 1. "Leave your car where it is, therefore you don't need to shovel and you don't need to throw the snow in the middle of the street," he said. "It is still dangerous out there."

He reminded New Yorkers not to walk in the streets unless they absolutely had to.

"There is a lot of work being done to get the city up and running for Monday, so we need people off the streets," he said.

131 of the city's homeless were taken off the streets Saturday night, almost all were voluntary, just one of those was involuntary.
