(CNN) - In New York City, Thursday's snowstorm presented the first major challenge for new Mayor Bill de Blasio.
"In Manhattan, in terms of the snow plowing, I give him an A, because I have had no complaints drom any of my community boards about the lack of snow plowing," said Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer.
"But our problem with the cold is the lack of heat and hot water in some of the buildings. That's an issue," said Brewer.
The city received about 2,000 complaints, identifying about 400 buildings in Manhattan without heat and hot water.
There is a good chance that temperatures could drop below zero Friday night. The city's housing agency has deployed a hundred extra inspectors to go to troubled buildings and try to get the heat turned on, said Brewer.
"That's what we're going to follow up on, is over the weekend, even talking to the Housing Agency, and where they have identified Manhattan buildings, we will go to them and try to work with the tenants to assure that they're okay," said Brewer.
