Curfew in 2015 Blizzard
A curfew was instituted for the January 26, 2015 blizzard, but just on car traffic in the streets of New York City. “If you are in your car and you are on any road — town, village, city — doesn’t matter — after 11 o’clock you will technically be committing a crime and get summons up to $300,” Cuomo announced. First responders and emergency personnel were permitted, however. Mass transit was also shut down at 11 PM that day, resulting in many photographs of empty transit hubs — a foreshadowing to the images early in the coronavirus pandemic.
