Schools Closed, Alternate Side Parking Cancelled for Wednesday

Schools will remain closed and drivers won't need to move their cars as Hurricane Sandy cleanup continues.

New York City's public schools will remain closed on Wednesday and alternate side parking has been cancelled for the day as the city works to recover from the impact of Hurricane Sandy.

Schools Chancellor Dennis Walcott announced that the city's schools would remain closed for another day.

"In response to damage, transportation closures, and the number of schools serving as shelters due to Hurricane Sandy, all New York City public schools will be closed to students," Walcott said in a statement. "All after-school activities and Public Schools Athletic League events will also be cancelled."

The city's Department of Transportation also announced that alternate side parking and parking meters have been suspended for the day.

While subways will still be shut down, MTA buses were back online as of 5 p.m. Tuesday evening on a weekend schedule, offering riders free trips.
