Question of the Day
• According to the airline tracking service FlightStats, the storm has caused more than 19,000 cancellations, including 2,820 Wednesday. The loss of East Coast flights stranded tourists in New York and kept travelers stuck in Hong Kong. The lack of trains left suburban commuters without a way into work.
• Nearly 20,000 residents were stranded in Hoboken, N.J., just across the Hudson River from Manhattan, amid accusations that officials have been slow to deliver food and water. One man blew up an air mattress and floated to City Hall, demanding to know why supplies hadn’t gotten out. In Little Egg Harbor Township, a coastal community bordering the southern end of Long Beach Island, streets and yards were clogged with battered pleasure craft — and the docks they had been tied to.
• The disruption extended even to the world of sport: New York Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg asked the National Basketball Association to postpone Thursday’s highly anticipated opener between the New York Knicks and newly named Brooklyn Nets in the first-ever game at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, and the league agreed. This weekend’s New York City Marathon, however, is still a go.\
• New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said there will be no subway service in Manhattan south of 34th Street, an area that includes the city’s financial district and many tourist sites. To make life a little easier, Cuomo said fares would be waived on the city’s subways and buses and suburban trains through Friday.
