NEW YORK, NY - New York City residents mopped up Saturday after tropical storm Arthur missed New York, and doused cable news networks' celebrations.
"Overall, we're in pretty good shape," said Bill De Blasio, mayor of New York City, 'the greatest city on the face of the earth'. "We dodged a bullet on this one."
De Blasio said city, county, state and federal government employees, handled most of the cleanup. The majority of the "clean up" involved removing signs posted by government employees warning citizens of the storm.
Costs for the cleanup are estimated at $13.6 billion, but most government experts expect that figure to double, triple or even quadruple.
