New York's subways swamped after Sandy

Grand Central Station --it's almost synonym for bedlam was an echo chamber a day after Sandy slammed into the East Coast. The superstorm swamped New York's subway system. Those who chose to walk, had to negotiate buckled sidewalks, downed trees and flooded streets among other things. And there was also a problem few have ever encountered in New York --- money to spend but no place to spend it. Stores and businesses were closed throughout the city. SOUNDBITE: John Balsey, Tourist From Charlotte, North Carolina, Saying: "There's lots of cabs and lots of cars and lots of people on the streets with money to spend but there isn't lots of places to spend it." Even in the superstorm's aftermath, there was element of supsense --- most it having to do with this collapsed crane which dangled precariously above midtown. The United Nations also fell victim to Sandy as did the recently-installed Space Shuttle Endeavor at the Intrepid Air, Sea and Space Museum.
