Watch Con Edison’s 14th Street Substation in Manhattan Explode, Lower Manhattan lost power for a week shortly after. I watched this happen from my livingroom.

It’s the 2nd Year Anniversary of Sandy. I wrote this shortly after power came back on in Manhattan: I Spent several days in the Rockaways, Queens and Coney Island, Brooklyn unloading trucks then climbing stairs and banging on doors in powerless, water-less and heat-less high rises delivering food and water to residents and checking on their well-being. Special thanks to the United States Army, New York National Guard and the NYPD for the amazing job they are doing. If you can’t volunteer then make a donation, no matter how small, to these organizations I saw in action and please eat downtown.
