New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is acknowledging flaws in clearing snow from Manhattan's posh Upper East Side after a storm dumped nearly a foot of it.

He faced complaints Wednesday that plowing lagged in the neighborhood while other areas were cleared more quickly after Tuesday's storm.

De Blasio initially said the citywide effort was robust and equitable. But he says in a statement Wednesday evening that he now feels "more could have been done to serve the Upper East Side."

De Blasio says 30 more vehicles and nearly 40 more sanitation workers have been sent to the area to finish the cleanup.

He says "the overall storm response across the city was well-executed."

De Blasio campaigned last year on closing gaps between rich and poor city residents.
