Gasoline shortage, messed up subway services. Clean ups still going on in parts that got hit bad. Also no power or anything in some places.

For the most parts everything's back to normal. You can see some flooded abandoned cars in downtown and areas close to East River, other than that it's mostly normal.

That's Manhattan only, only boroughs got fucked badly and it will take years to restore it.

mostly back to normal, if anything they will focus on the tourist areas the most anyway so you should be fine.

I work on 48 and 6th, block away from Times Sq. Everything is already back to normal here. A little more cops than usual but they'll be gone soon too.
