Thanks for these clips.

Ashleigh Banfield's report from 14th Street was interesting to see how regular Manhattoners were dealing with the situation and that some stores and restaurants were open.

I was glad to see a couple maps in the third clip - the subway map and later zeroing in on the location of NYU Hospital. But how many of us had to Google the location of Toms River NJ?
