Sandy in NYC photos: Remembering the days after the superstorm
Superstorm Sandy pummeled New York City on October 29, 2012, causing flooding and fires, and instantly leaving thousands of New Yorkers without shelter or power. The storm is blamed for at least 43 deaths in the city. Our transit system was crippled and gas rationing went into effect several days after the storm. Sandy's affects are still felt throughout the region, especially in the hardest-hit areas of Queens and Staten Island, despite billions of dollars in local and federal recovery aid.
These photos give a brief -- but painful -- look back at the days immediately following Sandy.
