NEW YORK (AP) - The parts of the city that are without power following the monster storm are seeing increased police patrols and other stepped-up security measures as they face the prospect of days without electricity.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg has promised "a very heavy police presence" in the darkened neighborhoods. Some prominent galleries in Manhattan's Chelsea neighborhood have brought in private security.

Officials said power might not be back until the weekend for hundreds of thousands of people.

There was no sign of looting or widespread crime, although about a dozen people were arrested in Coney Island and Queens on charges of trying to steal from shops, a pharmacy and the bank, where the entire front was missing.
