A travel advisory has been issued for today by the Office of Emergency Management because the freezing temperatures coupled with last night's snow are creating some slick spots around the city.

New Yorkers are encouraged to use mass transit whenever possible, though some commuters who spoke with NY1 say subway and bus stations can be dangerous this time of year.

"People have fallen on the ice, which is, you know, hey should put more salt down. I think if they put more salt out it would be more safer for the people going downstairs in the subway," said one commuter.

"It's very cold, and I've never seen snow like this in the last 10 or 15 years. It's bitter cold, the temperature is freezing," said another commuter.

While the city did not see much snow overnight, the Sanitation Department decided to suspend alternate side of the street parking rules again on Monday.

Drivers still have to feed the parking meters.
