NEW YORK (AP) - At New York City’s Penn Station, the status of every Amtrak train reads “canceled.”

Steve Rouse was among several dozen people in the Amtrak waiting area. He was trying to find a way to get home to Queens.

The 29-year-old store manager had arrived at the station at 2 a.m. after taking an Amtrak train from Washington, D.C.

He says he’s waiting until he can get a cab or subway home.

But he may have a long wait.

Only emergency vehicles are allowed on city streets, and subway service is suspended until further notice.

Amtrak suspended service north of New York and reduced its schedule for trains traveling south of New York.
