Subway, bus and rail transportation in and around New York City will continue to be shut down until further notice, according to the Mass Transportation Association. As of 2 p.m. Monday, the Holland Tunnel and the Hugh L. Carey Tunnel between Brooklyn and the Battery will be closed, per order of Governor Andrew Cuomo. There are no incoming or outgoing flights at LaGuardia Airport, New York's Kennedy Airport and Newark Liberty International Airport, but all three are open, a Port Authority spokesman said Monday afternoon. And New York City schools will remain closed Tuesday.

As for when the New York City subway, Metro North and the Long Island Railroad will be up-and-running again, MTA officials are taking a wait-and-see approach. In an ideal situation — when structural damage is not an issue —it takes 12 hours to restore service after a storm has passed, but that is "unlikely to happen" given the current tracking of Hurricane Sandy, said MTA spokesman Aron Donovan.
