Boston tied a daily snow record, and blizzard conditions were confirmed across New England and Long Island from a storm that also dumped more than 8 inches in Central Park and even more to the east. 

Boston received 23.6 inches at Logan International Airport in 24 hours, tying a 2003 record for the snowiest day, said Kristie Smith, a National Weather Service meteorologist in Norton, Massachusetts. Central Park received 8.3 inches, while 9.1 inches were reported at the Throgs Neck Bridge and 13.1 inches in Bayside, Queens.
