In Atlantic City, New Jersey most stayed indoors as the wind and rain pounded the pavement and the Ocean battled the shore.
Alexandria, Virginia looked more like a ghost town then a normally bustling old tourist town. Public schools were closed throughout the region, including the entire state of New Jersey. Airports also took a hit due to the storm. Here at Newark cancellation notices covered the banks of monitors.

And in New York, residents dashed unusually big puddles, several exchanges on Wall Street shut down early and city workers fled quickly after Mayor Guilanni declared a state of emergency. It all created congestion, but the Mayor offered this advice.
