As New Yorkers kept digging out from Friday night's snow storm, Governor Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Michael Bloomberg said the city got through it without any major problems.

The northern and eastern parts of the city saw the most snow, with some areas getting more than a foot.

The mayor praised the Sanitation Department on Saturday for its handling of the storm and sending out hundreds of salt spreaders and snow plows to clear the streets.

Hundreds of plows and crews from around the state focused their efforts Sunday on helping Long Island dig itself out of the snow.

Cuomo said more than a third of the state's snow removal assets -- about 700 pieces of snow removal equipment and almost 1,000 workers -- were sent to Suffolk County, where nearly three feet of snow fell.

In the city, alternate side parking rules will remain suspended Monday; Parking meters and muni-meters are back in effect.

Garbage and recycling pickup has resumed.

Most transit service was back to normal around the city by Sunday.

Subways ran on a regular Sunday schedule, but some express N, Q and D trains ran local and all weekend work was canceled.

The H shuttle train in the Rockaways section of Queens was without power for less than an hour Sunday morning, but then resumed normal service.

Buses were also on a regular Sunday schedule, but there were some detours because of the snow.

Metropolitan Transportation Authority officials said the Harlem and Hudson lines of Metro-North and the New Haven line between Grand Central Terminal and Stamford, Conn. had regular Sunday service.

Service between Stamford and New Haven, however, remained suspended Sunday.

Eight of the Long Island Rail Road's 11 branches had normal Sunday service, but MTA officials warned of weather-related delays.

Amtrak restored limited service between New York and Boston Sunday and Empire Service between the city and Albany was running on a normal Sunday schedule.

All three major area airports were open Sunday, but travelers were urged to call their carriers before heading out, following the weekend's massive amounts of delays and cancelations.
