Blackout 2003 NYC #1

I found a CD of old pictures! Lots of NYC type stuff from 2003. That's the year I got my camera. Everybody has cool little cameras now, but the one I have is 7 years old and very big and clunky. I still like it. I like big and clunky.

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?

  1. Yeah, I remember. When it first happened we thought it was another terrorist attack. 9/11 was still fresh in our minds.
