Snow Banks Make For Tough Business On Newbury Street

BOSTON (CBS) – Newbury Street in Boston’s Back Bay is known for its great shopping, not its great parking. Piles of snow left from all of the storms the last few weeks aren’t making things any easier.

Shop owners say the tougher-than-ever parking is affecting business. Shoppers who choose to defy the slippery snow banks, are making the best of it.

“It took me about fifteen minutes,” one woman told WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Doug Cope, after wedging her Mini Cooper onto some snow and ice. “I almost thought of parking in that garage, but I said, you know what, let me take a chance.”

Temporary signs have been placed in the snow banks, saying ‘No Parking’ overnight Friday into Saturday, indicating city crews will be at work removing some of the snow.
