In the New York City metro area, the worst of Hurricane Sandy seems to have passed, and the long work of recovery has begun. At a press conference today, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg spoke at length about the two biggest challenges facing the city, and they are also the main challenges of the entire tri-state region: restoring power and getting transit up and running. MTA subways and buses, Long Island Rail Road, Metro-North, NJ Transit, PATH, and other public transportation services are currently suspended, and, in consequence, many residents remain stuck in their neighborhoods. Some MTA buses are expected to start returning this evening at 5pm.
