Cleanup begins after huge East Coast snowstorm — AP PHOTOS

Other students were not so lucky: New York City's nearly 1 million public school students still have classes Monday, despite the record snowfall.

At least 9,500 flights have been cancelled and citizens were ordered to stay off the roads in some cities and towns.

Even so, many people were out in the street. The 27-year-old suspect was held without bail on a murder charge.

But treacherous conditions remained: Of at least 29 deaths blamed on the weather, shoveling snow and breathing carbon monoxide claimed more lives than car crashes as people recovered from a storm that dropped snow from the Gulf Coast to New England.

Cars moves on the FDR Drive, cleared of snow, in New York on Sunday, Jan. 24, 2016. "It's how it should look like".

With Broadway shows dark, thin crowds shuffled through a different kind of Great White Way in Times Square. "But we've come through it pretty well", de Blasio said on ABC's "This Week". "We think we'll be broadly up and running again at the city tomorrow". Those killed included a 4-year-old boy in North Carolina, a Kentucky transportation worker who was plowing highways, another Kentucky man whose car collided with a salt truck and a woman whose husband scaled a 300-foot-embankment to report that the couple's car had plunged down it and killed her.

NYPD Chief of Department Jim O'Neill told reporters Saturday one person on Staten Island and two people in Queens died. Carter was rerouted to Tampa, Florida.

Travel bans in New York City and Baltimore were expected to be lifted early Sunday morning.

A jogger runs on a snow-covered street in downtown Washington on Saturday, Jan. 23, 2016. The agency was working on restoring full service on Sunday. "This is terrible", he said, pointing to a pile of snow three feet high. City schools also were set to open on Monday. The bulk of that - 26.6 inches - fell on Saturday, making that 24-hour period the snowiest on record, according to the NWS.

Outside the city, suburban New Jersey resembled Vermont. The Brooklyn Bridge and lower Manhattan are in the background. "It's nice to be out today in the sun".

Officials said Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport and Washington Dulles International Airport were likely to remain closed Sunday. The deepest regional total was 42 inches (106.7 cm) at Glengarry, West Virginia. Washington-area airports remained closed Sunday after the punishing blizzard. High winds will create blowing and drifting snow in some areas, the National Weather Service warns.

Nevertheless, walkers, sledders, some cars and the occasional cross-country skier ventured into the dazzling white under a bright sun. Restaurants along the Jersey shore were partially submerged by flood waters on Saturday - one business owner said the water was waist-deep.

"I have to get into work no matter what".

While the snow has stopped, the weather warnings continue.

It just right for a huge snowball fight in Baltimore, where more than 600 people responded to organizer Aaron Brazell's invite on Facebook.

In Washington, 22.2 inches of snow were recorded, with 26.8 inches recorded in New York City - just 0.1 inches short of the 2006 record.

The storm delivered bursts of thunder and lightning, and winds reached a hurricane-force 75 mph at Dewey Beach, Delaware, and Langley Air Force Base, Virginia, the National Weather Service said.

On Sunday, moderate coastal flooding was still a concern in the Jersey Shore's Atlantic County, said Linda Gilmore, a county public information officer.
