Snow will come to an end across New York City after sunset from the powerful nor’easter that snarled travel up and down the East Coast, dropped snow by the foot, and lashed Massachusetts with hurricane-force wind gusts that knocked out power to thousands. 

New York got between 7.5 inches (19 centimeters) in Central Park to 10.3 inches at John F. Kennedy International Airport through the day, but across a large part of central and eastern Long Island totals reached above 20 inches, said Zack Taylor, a senior branch forecaster at the U.S. Weather Prediction Center. Across New Jersey there were reports of up to 18 inches, and some parts of eastern Massachusetts got two feet, the National Weather Service said. Boston has about 14.5 inches and snow should continue through midnight.
