You relax. I'm concerned because my apt is affected and although I'm lucky to be hanging out at my mom's place...I'd like to get home. When they said power would be restored at 10 I was hoping I could head out tonight but since they're now saying midnight. I think not...

And the outage is spreading further south to 14th street now with 90k without power...

Power is being restored to Times Square, sounds like situation is being restored.

The blackout that hit New York on this day, July 13, in 1977 was to many a metaphor for the gloom that had already settled on the city. An economic decline, coupled with rising crime rates and the panic-provoking (and paranoia-inducing) Son of Sam murders, had combined to make the late 1970s New York’s Dark Ages.

Aw..nuts...

Listening to Cuomo on CNN now and there's no timeline for restoration. Other transformers are now malfunctioning so the outage is spreading. MSG affected with more people losing power...

I’d like to know more about the ordinary citizens who step up and start directing traffic in all this chaos. Are these just regular joes and Jills or are they people with background in law enforcement or military? Inquiring minds want to know!!

You're right! Parts of the UWS, Hell's Kitchen, Times Sq have power now. Con Ed is saying all will be restored midnight!

Joes and Jills, likely. I hope everyone stays with a cool head and doesn't give them too much grief.

So, what's the metaphor for this one? And the one in 2003?

Would they tell us if it was?
