People head out onto the streets of New York and begin the clean-up after superstorm Sandy caused widespread flooding and destruction.
In lower Manhattan, residents sifted through water-damaged belongings, piling rubbish and debris onto the streets. Several businesses were forced to throw away goods and produce. In some areas, floodwater continued to pour into the streets, as pumps worked to clear buildings left submerged in the Sandy's wake.
Officials say they face unprecedented challenges restoring New York and its flooded subway system.
