After Sandy, New York’s new normal
It’s been three days since Sandy hit New York City, and still the city is struggling to get back to normal.
Subway service has resumed today but only on a limited basis. That means commuters will likely face another day of traffic jams. All of lower Manhattan is still without power and is facing significant damage due to flooding.
Meanwhile, coffee shops, bank branches and other local businesses have become make-shift charging stations for New Yorkers desperate to power up computers and cellphones.
