Storm reporting mobilized newsrooms across the city, and apparently, The >New York Times was no exception. ”City Struggling For Footing, Some Transit Restored“, the Times article by James Barron about storm recovery, lists 56 contributing writers.
“Still hobbled by power failures and waterlogged transit, the New York region started to restore some services but restricted car use on Wednesday as it struggled to return to daily life,” the 1,319 word story begins. The piece sums up the response to the storm. Obviously, there was a lot of reporting. And lots of contributors.
Reporting on the storm was contributed by Peter Applebome, Charles V. Bagli, Nina Bernstein, Joseph Berger, Russ Buettner, John H. Cushman Jr., David W. Dunlap, Theo Emory, Ann Farmer, Sheri Fink, Emma Fitzsimmons, Lisa W. Foderaro, Joseph Goldstein, J. David Goodman, Michael M. Grynbaum, Danny Hakim, David M.
