A woman and her son scramble over a tree toppled by Superstorm Sandy as she accompanies him to Public School 195 (background) in the Manhattan Beach neighborhood of Brooklyn in New York on Monday. Monday was the first day of public school for New York City students after the storm of a week ago. The woman declined to provide their names. Fewer than 50 schools throughout the five boroughs remained closed because of structural damage and fewer than 20 were without power. (Associated Press)
