Excerpt:

NBC’s Kerry Sanders reports from Yonkers, N. Y,, where an aerial view of the New York City region shows a traffic nightmare as officials set up checkpoints to make sure every vehicle has at least three passengers before they are allowed into the city. The promise of limited restoration of transit services lured hundreds of thousands back into the nation’s largest city Thursday, but the commute was nightmarish even by New York City’s standards: Seemingly endless lines formed at bus stops, backups at the city’s bridges and tunnels stretched for miles, and many people simply gave up after an hour or two of frustration. The scene was “pure mayhem,” said one commuter, Lanisha Harris, who was trying to get to work in Manhattan from Canarsie, Brooklyn, days after Superstorm Sandy threw the region into chaos.
