New Yorkers Take To The Streets On Foot To Get To Work

With subways out of commission from water damage from Superstorm Sandy and buses only running on limited routes, New Yorkers are having to find another way to commute. Thousands of people are hitting the streets walking, riding their bikes and even skateboarding to get to work, now that the storm danger is past, but services aren't back up and running.

The BikePortland blog has some cool pictures of hundreds of people jamming sidewalks and bridges trying to get to work.
