Unprecedented for a weather emergency.
New York City will come to a standstill tomorrow as Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s office said it will shut down the entire train and bus system at noon Saturday as Hurricane Irene moves up the east coast.
The shutdown will include the Long Island Rail Road, Metro-North Railroad and Access-A-Ride.
In a press conference Friday, Bloomberg warned that service may not be restored in time for the Monday morning commute.
IMAGINE the chaos.
