The Moment the Power Went Out

Here's an incredibly eerie time-lapse video (taken from the top of Northside Piers in Williamsburg) during Hurricane Sandy, which shows the exact moment when power went out in Lower Manhattan. Very apocalyptic. I feel so lucky to be sitting on my couch here in Brooklyn with working electricity, water and Internet, and I am sending good vibes across the river, especially to elderly and disabled people who are without power in the city's many highrise buildings.
