Hard-hit New Yorkers, known for their resilience, bowed to the killer storm as Sandy battered the World Financial Center with an unprecedented power usually reserved for the canyons most infamous financial brokers.

Millions in the Big Apple remain without power as the city that never sleeps slowly awakens to survey the Armageddon that accompanied the killer storm.  Below 34th Street on Manhattans' West side, the home of MACY’s Herald Square Flagship host to the upcoming Thanksgiving Day parade has been described by local officials as “hardest hit with major power outages.”  The hope remains the some of the millions without power will be restored sometime with the next week. According to all accounts New York City’s transportation system, while a priority, will take some time and extensive repair to become fully operational.

Manhattans’ massive transportation system that encompasses over eight hundred miles of subway tracks and tunnels and delivers of 1.64 billion rides annually has been devastated.  Although, signs of life have already begun to show themselves as the Subway transportation has been limitedly restored the majority of the extensive system will take some time before service is completely restored.

Four of the six bridges and tunnels connecting Manhattan are closed. The New York/New Jersey Path Trains are will remain closed indefinitely. New York’s LaGuardia airport is also closed. JFK has limited service and New Jersey’s Newark reports normal activity.

Hurricane Sandy has left an estimated 800 miles swath of destruction and disaster affecting twenty-five states including the entire eastern seaboard and stretching as far inland with West Virginia, Tennessee and Maryland all receiving close to three feet of snow.

Deemed the “Frankenstorm” Hurricane Sandy was the largest Atlantic Hurricane in diameter on record and will eventually cost upwards of 25Billion in damages making Sandy one of the most costly hurricanes in modern history.

As state, local and federal official face the daunting task of damage assessment, safety concerns and clean up, the next hurdle is preparing polling places for Election 2012 that occurs in less than one week.

As we head into the last weekend before the Tuesday, November 6th presidential election, the questions now become will the electricity be available? Will we face another dangling Chad disaster? And will the majority of the population in the hard hit eastern seaboard states take the risk to travel, if their local polling place is unavailable, or not?
