The 2003 NYC Blackout
Hope those of you affected by the blackout had a nice night/day... We didn't get power back here in the East Village until 9pm, a good 29 hours after power went out. We were one of the last neighborhoods to get power back. Life is unbearable without power. No cellphone. No net access. No TiVo. No A/C. No refrigerator. And obviously, no light (duh). Although I will say that it was kind of nice seeing everyone out and about at night in bars lit by candles, trying to make the best of the situation...
Here are some shots I took while walking around the city the past day and a half.
