i just got home, had to take the bus. All the streets from around 34th street to 79th street were blocked off by the NYPD. After Columbus circle there was hardly anyone on the street. All the buses were full and skipping groups of people who were so upset. I felt bad for them because they must have been waiting a long time. Im so happy i was downtown and got a seat on the bus. It was still creepy to see the streets practically deserted and most of the lights off.


And personally i think it isn't a coincidence that this is the same day there was a power outage in 1977.

I am glad that I was nowhere near Manhattan yesterday afternoon/evening!

Not if you take in account how many major outages we have a year. You need to x1000 at least to your equation.

You think this blackout is bad, wait 'till Cuomo shuts down Indian Point 2 in 2020 and Indian Point 3 in 2021.

How many outages of this scale happen in NYC each year? Excluding storms.
