Two nights of hard rain and damaging gust, much of New York City are starting on the road to recovery after its brush with Hurricane Sandy just a few hours ago. The return to normalcy will take a few more days at best, but one sign points at the resiliency of New Yorkers – the Brooklyn Nets will take on the New York Knicks at the new NBA season opening game tomorrow night. Before the storm hit, it was already the most anticipated match-up of the year, many because the move Nets made last year from New Jersey to Brooklyn. Now, there is another cross-town rivalry aside from the so-called Subway Series between the New York Yankees and New York Mets. Because the majority of mass transit is still not up and running just yet, no one is sure how fans will get to Barclays Center tomorrow night. Then again, New Yorkers are a resourceful bunch. After all, if you can make it here, you can make it anywhere. The historical showdown between New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets will take place 7 pm tomorrow, November 1st, at the new Barclays Center.
