This is so hard to believe, isn't it? It is for me.
New York, New York. I *heart*NY.
There's no other city in the world that is better known. Massive high rises, the cultural center of the nation for opera, orchestra and theater - for better or worse, New York represents this country to people around the world.

If it can happen there, it can happen anywhere, New York, New York!

Shivering victims of Superstorm Sandy went to church Sunday to pray for deliverance as cold weather settling in across the New York metropolitan region - and another powerful storm forecast for the middle of the week - added to their misfortunes and deepened the gloom.

With overnight temperatures sinking into the 30s and hundreds of thousands of homes and businesses still without electricity six days after Sandy howled through, people piled on layers of clothes, and New York City officials handed out blankets and urged victims to go to overnight shelters or daytime warming centers.

At the same time, government leaders began to grapple with a daunting longer-term problem: where to find housing for the tens of thousands of people whose homes could be uninhabitable for weeks or months because of a combination of storm damage and cold weather.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg said 30,000 to 40,000 New Yorkers may need to be relocated - a monumental task in a city where housing is scarce and expensive - though he said that number would probably drop to 20,000 within a couple of weeks as power is restored in more places.

New Yorkers and people from Jersey can be real a$$holes sometimes ( used to talk to them on the phone for work all the time). However, when disaster strikes it's so moving to see these tough people come together and show one another some love.

NYC is one of my favorite places in the world to visit. If I were rich, I'd have a place down in NYC to live in part time. Absolutely love the city and the culture. My heart goes out to them.
