Gov. Andrew Cuomo says about 80 percent of New York City's subway service has been restored.
Cuomo announced that 4,5,6 and 7 train service was fully restored at 10 a.m. Saturday, connecting Brooklyn and Manhattan by subway for the first time in almost a week, and restoring most service between Queens and Manhattan.
Cuomo noted that the progress has been made less than a week since the superstorm hit.
He says the storm brought the worst damage the subways had ever had.
