The governor has just announced that JFK airport will be opened tomorrow - Wednesday - but it is not expected that all scheduled flights will arrive/depart, based on equipment being misplaced.

LGA will NOT reopen Wednesday - since some of the runways are actually below sea level. Reopening date is not fixed yet.

It is anticipated that buses will start running, on a Sunday schedule, and only where there are no floods, this evening. They will try for a work day schedule tomorrow, again not including flooded areas.

Subway service is expected to take 3 or 4 days at least to return - and some sections much longer, since tunnels - esp those under the east river - are full of water which must be pumped out.

MetroNorth commuter train timing is not yet determined based on water in many of the tunnels and also a 40' boat on the tracks of the Hudson line, as well as many downed trees that must be removed. LIRR is anyone's guess.

Until the transit system is up and running cabs and car services (TL license sedans) are being encouraged to pick up multiple passengers going in the same direction.

Power is being returned as quickly as possible - with repair crews being flown in from Texas, CA, etc. About 300 generators are being brought in - but they will be assigned to hospitals, nursing homes, and other high priority venues. For individual homeowners power may take 7 to 10 days to restore based on the number of transformers that must be repaired or replaced.
