The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey reopened the Holland Tunnel, which connects Jersey City to Lower Manhattan, at 5 a.m. on Wednesday, November 7, 2012.

The tunnel was closed because of flooding from storm surge caused by Superstorm Sandy.

It was reopened to buses earlier this week.

On an average weekday, an estimated 91,000 vehicles use the Holland Tunnel.

    A piece of 20th Century history is preserved in pristine condition 13 stories deep into the cavernous bowels of Grand Central Terminal. It is the deepest basement in New York City. Now it is just a little known location, but at one time it was super secretive.

    A viewer sent Fox 5 photos of falling ceiling plaster and paint at the entrance to the downtown subway station for the No. 1 train at 50 Street and Broadway. We went to check and found the falling debris had been cleaned up off the floor. A shopkeeper there said that MTA workers sweep up the plaster and paint chips. The ceiling still looked like it was from a prehistoric building.
