NEW YORK CITY — Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced that city schools will remain closed on Tuesday as the wrath of Hurricane Sandy began to make its way to New York.

With no subways or buses and the city on lockdown, Bloomberg canceled classes for a second day on Tuesday, along with all after-school activities and athletic league events.

"There's no chance that the mass transit will be back in time to serve people and they're always worried about cleanup," Bloomberg told reporters at a press conference Monday at the city's Office of Emergency Management headquarters.

"Due to anticipated severe weather conditions from Hurricane Sandy, all New York City public schools will be closed to students tomorrow, October 30," Schools Chancellor Dennis Walcott said.
