New York subway making gradual comeback Platform at South Ferry station, Manhattan (MTA Photos)

This Halloween, the growling, screeching monster that is New York’s subway will start to rise again, beginning a gradual recovery from Frankenstorm’s devastation. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced Wednesday that the MTA is testing subway service this afternoon, and 14 out of the city’s 23 lines are expected to start running again on Thursday. Trains will not run below midtown in Manhattan, where power remains cut off following an explosion at a Con Ed substation on Monday night when Sandy hit.

Limited commuter rail service on Metro-North and the Long Island Railroad will resume at 2pm Wednesday on Metro-North and the Long Island Railroad. Keep up to date on which trains are running here.
