New Jersey's capital cleans up following hurricane

Many of Trenton's older streets and buildings put up little resistance to Irene's floodwaters. However, not all areas of the capital took a hit.

Not all areas in Trenton were flooded, including "The Island" section of the city. The area is notorious for floods, but was spared this time.

Amtrak officials are meeting to discuss how soon the tracks can get back up and running.
