Hurricane Irene snarls New York highways, tunnels, sidewalks


 

When everything is shut down, all we have left is our bikes.  Gear up and get going(only when it’s safe of course)!

Although the massive New York transit system — subways, buses and commuter trains — was shut down in anticipation of the storm, the metropolitan area was still open if you were willing to get behind a wheel or stroll a sidewalk.

Until this morning.

As Hurricane Irene roars through the area, flooding and downed trees are shutting down parts of major roads, highways, tunnels and bridges ringing New York City and making some sidewalks impassable.
