This is Bedford Ave. Williamsburg during a black out. Nothing too crazy. Having no power in the city is a bit like camping. But instead of trees and grass you have concrete.
A black out is a perfect opportunity to sit around on the curb and make music. Bam!
But really its a bunch of tired and thirsty people.
It would have sucked being stuck in a subway car on a bridge or in a tunnel when the power went out.
The foot of the bridge on the Brooklyn Side.
Sucks to have a car right now.
The foot of bridge on the Manhattan side.
More people. Just walking out of the city.
90 degrees and no wind.
Never seen this many people on the bridge before. The car lanes were open to pedestrians too.
Getting on the Williamsburg Bridge.
I'd hate to have his job right now.
I bet his business went up 5 fold!
Yet another future documentary filmmaker.
Translation "The eat our food before it gets bad and drink our beer before it gets warm special"
The only sure way of getting anywhere is walking.
Of course the Subways are down
Not sure if this was the smartest move getting into a bus when the streets are bumper to bumper packed with traffic. At least its got AC I guess.
1st things 1st; you wanna fnd out what is going on.
No room anywhere.
Wait 20 minutes, still no power. Starting my trek from Chelsea, Manhattan where I work to Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
Bam! No lights. You start wondering what is up when the 14th Street power plant in Manhattan is puffing black smoke.
