Power To The People

Or at least to Lower Manhattan – soon:

Nearly everyone south of 39th Street in Manhattan has been without power since Monday night. As of 4:30 a.m. this morning, Con Ed had restored electricity to 225,000 customers citywide, but 676,000 remained powerless, including 227,000 in Manhattan. But residents there only need to hang on a little longer now. Governor Andrew Cuomo’s suddenly relevant Twitter account confirmed today that, as initial estimates predicted, the entire borough would rejoin modern civilization by Friday or Saturday at the latest after days of living in the dark ages. In fact, any city residents served by underground power lines will be able to watch Netflix again by Saturday.
