New York's bridges are reopen, reconnecting a city that was otherwise nearly isolated. The subways, that's a different story. The challenges that lie ahead are described as enormous. There's no word on when the subways will start running again. Several of the train tubes beneath the East River remain flooded.  One subway station in lower Manhattan still has water up to the ceiling.

In the news business, the slogan is get it first...but get it right! Some media outlets got it wrong Monday night.
