A friend of mine just posted the photo above. She lives across the river from New York City which is experiencing a blackout. It doesn’t appear to be an entire city black out thank goodness, but I’m sure it’s unpleasant enough as it is.
Apparently this is also the anniversary of the 1977 black out in New York City where there was lots of looting.
If you scroll through things on social media especially Twitter you see people posting who are trapped in elevators and stuff.
