Public Spaces Empty as Sandy Strikes

The Brooklyn-Battery Tunnel (which was recently renamed as the Hugh L. Cary Tunnel) will close at 2:00 p.m. today.

Grand Central Terminal, where some 750,000 commuters pass through daily, closed on Oct. 28, as Hurricane Sandy made its approach to the East Coast.

Designed by the architectural firms Reed & Stem and Warren & Wetmore, Grand Central Terminal appears here after the last train departs before Hurricane Sandy arrives.

One of the New York subway system's busiest platforms, empty of rail riders.

This image of an empty Times Square subway station could be any station, since New York City—like Baltimore, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C.—has closed its public transit for the storm.

Soldiers maintain their vigil outside the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington, Va., despite the storm.
