Monday night’s blizzard did not meet the grave, “historic” expectations meteorologists and public officials had set for it — at least, not in New York City.

After projections of between two and three feet of snow, 9 inches of snow blanketed the Bronx by Tuesday morning, according to the National Weather Service. Almost 8 inches covered Central Park and Park Slope, Brooklyn saw 7 inches.

Long Island and Massachusetts are said to have received the brunt of the storm. 17.8 inches of snow covered Massapequa, Long Island — and in Shrewsbury, Mass. — about 40 miles from Boston — 31 inches of snow covered the ground by Tuesday morning.

After canceling classes Monday afternoon and all day Tuesday, Fordham will resume its normal operating schedule on Wednesday, Public Safety said.

  • Health Services at Rose Hill open Tuesday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
  • Rose Hill’s neighborhood shuttle service will resume Tuesday evening
  • Ram Van service will resume normal operations, beginning Wednesday morning
  • Residential dining halls will open on their normal schedules at both campuses
  • Walsh and Quinn Libraries will open on its normal schedule; Law Library is closed on Tuesday, but will be open on Wednesday
