I ventured into Manhattan last night, walked across the Williamsburg Bridge to the Lower East Side.  It was very surreal, as the lights in Brooklyn were all on, but as I reached the halfway point across the bridge……..darkness.   Yes, there were cars, and on major intersections, large really bright lights on generators set up by the city.  But there were blocks and blocks of pure darkness, only lit by the moon and occasional car.   Very few people were out.  Those that were carried flashlights or candles.  My friend Michael and I spent about six hours walking around and shooting.  From 9pm until 3am, and plan to return again tonight.
