ALBANY - The snow emergency in Albany was lifted Saturday at 8 p.m., but not before dozens of cars were towed.

The city worked to clean up after Friday's Nor’easter. For many residents, it was a surprise that the Capital City was under a snow emergency. They said they didn't see as much snow as some on the outskirts.

Dozens of cars were parked on the wrong side of the street Saturday morning, but for some they know better.

“Years ago, I parked during a snow emergency on another street,” said Albany resident Elliott Rosen. “I forgot about my car and it was towed. So I learned my lesson."

The people who did get their cars towed will end up having to pay a hefty fine to get their cars back. Residents say these snow emergencies are a nuisance, but they appreciate what the city is trying to do in the long run.
