NYC Subways to Reopen Thursday

You couldn’t keep New York on its knees for too long, Sandy. The city’s subway system will return on a limited basis on Thursday, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said on Wednesday. There will be no subway service below 34th St. in Manhattan due to the lack of electricity, while three of the seven East River tunnels have been pumped. There will be limited Long Island Rail Road and Metropolitan North service beginning at 2 p.m. on Wednesday. Cuomo said he has spoken to President Obama, who has been “very on top of the situation.” Obama is touring the devastated New Jersey shore with Gov. Chris Christie, who has called the hurricane damage “worse than anything I ever thought I would see.”
