New York (AP) — Nearly 1,510 flights remain delayed or cancelled in the aftermath of a massive blizzard that slammed into the eastern U.S., wreaking havoc on travel in the nation's busiest cities.

Airports in the New York City and Washington D.C. metro areas were the hardest hit. Newark Liberty International lists 244 cancelled flights and 9 delays as of Monday morning, the most of any U.S. airport. Meanwhile, LaGuardia lists 143 cancelled flights and 3 delays with John F. Kennedy airport listing 42 cancellations and 10 delays.

In Washington D.C., Washington Dulles International listed 127 cancellations and 3 delays, making it the third-worst affected airport in the nation.

The storm dropped snow from the Gulf Coast to New England, with near-record snowfalls tallied from Washington, D.C. to New York City.
