On This Day Nineteen Years Ago, The Blizzard of '96 Dumped Twenty Inches of Snow onto New York City

On January 7th, 1996, the Blizzard of '96 dumped 20.2 inches of snow as it passed through, prompting a City-wide shutdown of most transit and business. This resulted in the loss of tens of millions of dollars in lost revenue for the City. The storm was the 4th largest in NYC history since records started in 1869.
