Brendan Dowd sleds with his daughters Jasmine and Mairin, 9 and 7, down a sledding hill in Brooklyn's Prospect Park after the season's first blizzard blanketed New York on Dec. 27. A powerful East Coast blizzard marooned thousands of would-be air, rail and road travelers Monday, shutting down major airports and rail lines for a second day, stranding buses on buried highways, and forcing New York City subway riders to spend a cold night in unheated trains.
