EAST VILLAGE, Manhattan (PIX11) -- "It was hard to stand still on Wednesday night," Jacqueline McDonnell told us in Midtown. "People were bundling up, walking quickly, and doing their best to stay warm."
In the East Village, we found people lined up outside Brodo to buy a cup of their famous broth.
Brodo was built out the back door of Hearth Restaurant in early November of last year.
We spoke with Chef Marco Canora, the owner of Hearth Restaurant as well as Brodo.
"It's kind of the perfect remedy for the cold," said Canora.
The Home Depot in Long Island City told us heaters and other items to help keep people warm are pretty popular right now.
Pop Panurach of Elmhurst, Queens, came in to pick one up for his apartment.
Co-store Manager, Dorett Taylor, told us items to keep people warm, like heaters, are going, and that they have to keep refilling the shelves.
