Skift Take

Airports will take a few days to get back up to speed, and LGA's future readiness will have to be reconsidered.

And while we’re all still assessing damage from Hurricane Sandy, looks like La Guardia will not open for a few days, maybe rest of the week, though NY governor Andrew Cuomo says JFK will open by tomorrow.

Some pics from Twitter and elsewhere, on the airports in New York/New Jersey area:
