We went outside last night around midnight to take photos of an eerily-dark New York City. At that hour with no lights, it was a bit creepy so we didn't go further than the Flatiron Building. In this photo, all the lights on the building are either from passing traffic or reflected from nearby buildings with power. Power is expected to be restored by this weekend, but until then, its a unique sight indeed.
