A deserted New York City, getting ready for Hurricane Sandy

As Hurricane Sandy is approaching New York City, the MTA announced that all subway, bus, and commuter rail service would be suspended, beginning at 7 p.m. EDT on October 28 and expected to continue through at least October 30. All PATH train service and stations will be shutdown at 12:01 a.m. October 29. Here are some eerie photos showing huge New York transportation hubs abandoned due to Hurricane Sandy.
