With a cold and snowy storm about to arrive, the City of Manhattan is telling some of its residents to leave their water running. Here is what the city posted on their website earlier today:

Temperatures are expect to dip down below freezing on Saturday night into Sunday morning. The area is also expected to receive up to four inches of snow.
