Hurricane Sandy proved deadly across the tri-state -- killing people in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.
"It's sad, it's very sad. I can't even imagine what those families are going through right now," said New York resident Caitlin Ahern,
At one point 2-million New Yorkers were without power. In Queens 80-100 homes were ravaged by fire, and pounding flood water shut down New York City's subway system for a second day Tuesday.
"It looks pretty crazy to think that the streets that you walk on are just filled with water," said New York resident Corey O'Neill.
Flooding forced newlyweds Corey and Caitlin O'Neill to evacuate their honeymoon suite in Connecticut.
"We had such a great few days previously. We tried to be as optimistic about it as we could and think about how fun it would be to laugh about it a few years down the road," Corey said.
They made it to a family apartment Monday night in New York City, only to be forced to evacuate a second time, as a 75-story crane hit by Sandy's wind dangled above their neighborhood.
"We had checked and they said it was fine for us to stay and within an hour we were asked to evacuate. It was a little scarier when we came out of the apartment building we started to jog toward the East Side," Caitlin said.
New York City's 76 emergency shelters remain open. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is estimating damage from the storm to be in the billions of dollars and power could be out for another two days.
