It was a week ago when the entire tri-state area was torn apart by the super storm known as Hurricane Sandy. Possessions were destroyed, homes were ravaged and lives were lost. In the days that followed, survivors were left in the cold with nowhere to stay and no food to eat. But we are a resilient bunch and the tri-state showed their true colors, coming to the aid of everyone in need.

And within days, the systems that connect us all together were up and running: New York City’s subways, Jersey Transit, Metro North, the LIRR, the airports and our bustling streets; all because the employees of the MTA and others worked around the clock to take one of the necessary first steps for a return to normalcy.

Today in the CBS-FM Hall of Fame, we salute Planes, Trains and Automobiles (NOT the movie, though we love it); a salute to those that got everything up and running again!
