Who turned off the lights

Posted by Kirby Turner on July 21, 2002

The brief power outage in the lower Manhattan was an interesting experience. With no power in the West Village, shops and restaurants were forced to close. This sent a large number of people out onto the streets. And traffic was a total mess with no traffic signals working. Subways were not working and buses were overflowing with people.

I was planning to meet Melanie and Brenna for lunch in Central Park just as the power went out. So I started walking. And I walked, and I walked. I can now say I have walked from my apartment to Melanie’s Upper Eastside pad with only one brief stop in Central Park. Although an enjoyable walk, it’s not something I care to do on a regular basis.
