Those who want to enter Manhattan by car over one of the East River bridges will need to bring at least two other passengers.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced the restrictions at his press conference updating residents on the city’s response to the storm.

The restriction — which will be enforced by the NYPD — will be in effect between 6 a.m. and midnight on Thursday and Friday to ease traffic in the city and will only apply to cars going to Manhattan, not leaving.

Some other updates from the Bloomberg press conference:

  • FDNY search and recovery missions are continuing in the Rockaways with workers going house to house. “Hopefully they will not discover any more tragedies,” said Bloomberg.
  • Schools will remain closed for the remainder of the week and will reopen on Monday.
  • Parks are still off-limits to the public as they are being inspected and will likely reopen this weekend.
  • The Sanitation Department is collecting trash and removing debris; recycling collection is postponed until further notice.
  • 125 senior centers will be open tomorrow.
