This is a shot from the blackout of 2003. The blackout started on a thursday, 8/13/03, and lasted till the next day in Manhattan.
The traffic lights weren't working, so police cadets from the academy performed service by directing traffic. This is park avenue south and someplace.
I have more shots from the event which I will eek out over time.
It was quite a summer night. You remember, you were there, right?
