Buses and some subways are running in New York City, but that doesn't mean that transit is fixed.
In the past week, 20 owners of Porsche Panameras and Cayennes in Amsterdam have had their headlights stolen. The police suspect that the headlights are being stolen for use as grow lights for marijuana.
A couple of New York bros caught the owner of the infamous Superstorm Sandy Bentley not only flooded, but driving through flood waters. It looks like someone really wanted some insurance money.
Traffic levels have caught up in New York faster than the infrastructure has recovered. This is a ten-block line for gas in Brooklyn this morning.
Gawker Network Sandy Wrap Up
Last night I set off from my Upper West Side apartment to go see Manhattan blacked out south of 34th street, particularly the East Village where some of my friends live. How would my old stomping grounds look after Sandy put it under water? More importantly, could I find a delicious, hot meal in the dark?
Getting gas in New Jersey is a challenge after Sandy. Use the hashtags #njgas and #njopen to find what's available. Share what information you have with them as well.
New Yorkers are still assessing the damage of Sandy. Here is the boardwalk Rockaway, Queens pulled up onto a Mini.

Sandy claims a classic Mercedes 190SL. Excuse us while we shed a tear. (Hat tip to Tony!)
Limited service of the Subway outside of Lower Manhattan starts tomorrow morning. The MTA's Twitter feed has a full list of running trains from Governor Cuomo.
Mayor Bloomberg’s spokesman declared on Twitter that passenger cars will not be banned from entering Manhattan, as the New York Post recently reported.

Global Rally Cross Ends In SEMA With A Slidey, Smokey Finish Tanner Foust sealed up the Global Rallycross Championship at the season finale at SEMA. He may have won, but the star of the show was Brian Deegan, who dove into second place and drove the rest of the race completely sideways. It was fantastically hoony.

Approximately 16 of the $100,000+ Fisker Karma extended-range luxury hybrids were parked in Port Newark, New Jersey last night when water from Hurricane Sandy's storm surge apparently breached the port and submerged the vehicles. As Jalopnik has exclusively learned, the cars then caught fire and burned to the ground.
