Crews are working to remove the derailed cars and repair the track. The repairs will take until at least Friday, the MTA said.

One of the four main tracks between Penn Station and Jamaica remains out of service.

    Mayor Bill de Blasio won't be reimbursing the city for personal travels that involve his security detail. "We have followed the conflict of interest board guidelines.
