Storm-battered New York got slowly back on its feet today, with Wall Street and two of the city's airports up and running after a monster storm that left more than 50 Americans dead.

Just six days before America goes to the polls, President Barack Obama surveyed the damage in neighbouring New Jersey, where tens of thousands of homes are under water and millions of families without power.

Despite these improvements, large sections of New York, including many skyscrapers in lower Manhattan, remained without electricity, and schools throughout the city were to remain shuttered for the rest of the week.
