Shortly following the wrath of Hurricane Sandy, New York City is already picking up the pieces and rearing for a swift recovery. Since yesterday morning, millions of New Yorkers embodied the spirit of "the city that never sleeps" and were determined to make their way into work despite citywide public transportation delays and shut downs.

A phenomenal display of resilience, it's important to understand just what New York City had to go through. YouTube channel SMvideoChan shared a stunning time-lapse footage of the New York City skyline from early morning October 29 through October 30. Condensed into a bite-sized two-minute clip, the video documents the complete encounter between the most populous city on the Eastern seaboard and the most powerful storm system to ever hit it in modern times.

The video is taken from the Northside Piers towers located in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Out in the distance, you can see the Williamsburg bridge spanning Wallabout Channel.

Slowly and ominously, cloud formations above the city start to intensify as strong winds meet high tides to cause choppy conditions. A storm surge finally causes the proud city to give when a conEdision transformer explosion caused a majority of lower Manhattan to lose power. What's more, heavy rainfall sometimes even made the Manhattan skyline disappear.

Check out the video below to relive one of the worst storms New York City ever experienced:
