It's supposed to go off here at midnight. To all you tourists contemplating Christmas in New York City or New Years in Times Square, this means there will be no bus and subway service within the 5 Boroughs (Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, Bronx, Staten Island). No, you can't rent a car instead, there is no place to park (literally), especially in Manhattan. Taxi? Good luck. Do yourself a favor, come here next year when this mess is settled. If they go out tonight, it's gonna get ugly.
