Yesterday marked a year since Hurricane Sandy made landfall in NYC; a myriad of commemorative events took place around town, exhibits opened with extraordinary photographs of the storm, and A- and R-train riders didn't have to pay. On his end, Governor Andrew Cuomo led a Sandy resiliency tour that spotlighted the city's efforts to boost its defenses at Ground Zero, La Guardia Airport and the South Ferry subway station.
Above, you can see a photo of the governor in the lower-Manhattan station viewing a tunnel plug demonstration to stop water from entering the subways. Pretty cool stuff! He took to his Twitter to share updates from his #Sandy1year resiliency tour; check out some highlights below, and see more on Cuomo's Flickr page.
