Mayor: We'll stand together to get city back on its feet

THE BRONX - Mayor Michael Bloomberg addressed the city on the aftermath of what some are calling the storm of the century.

Bloomberg told New Yorkers, "We will stand together to get the city we love back on its feet." He says the biggest challenges in upcoming days will be restoring power and getting the mass transit system running again.

The mayor has signed an executive order allowing cabs to pick up multiple people while public transportation is down. Shelters will stay open until people can safely return home, and schools will remain closed for a third straight day.
