Sandy Visits Brooklyn, New York

Hello world,

Thank God the worst is over. Now we are in recovery and rebuilding mode. The Mayor of New York City has just announced that the death toll from Sandy now stands at 42 people. The New York City Marathon is off and the Nets Basketball game is on in Brooklyn tonight. Subways are up and running at least in Manhattan and some of the outer boroughs. The L train is still not running into Manhattan due to flooding of the 14th street tunnel. The MTA is working on it so we hope by Monday the L will be running. Check back here to find out.

Remember that Daylight Saving Time (DST) ends tonight so many people will get back the hour sleep they lost this week. Turn your clock back one hour before going to bed. If you are using candles- put them out before going to bed. If you are in Queens and cannot get gas, go to the Queens Armory in Jamaica, NY (168th Street). The National Guard is there and you will get gas. Some parts of the city are still without power so if you are coming to New York be reminded of that and be safe. Most NYC public schools will re-open on Monday for the over 1 million students. A few schools were damaged so please check with the city of New York’s website (
