I guess this is what they call a New York moment. After being trapped on the F for an hour because of the power outage I emerged to see dark restaurants & traffic lights, civilians directing traffic, & an evacuated Carnegie Hall concert happening in the street. #nyc #Blackout pic.twitter.com/3p9UWtRrel

#fruitstandguy is still alone directing traffic and no cops to be seen on Broadway and 66th Street at the #Blackout pic.twitter.com/Agdt7ZYn9l
How ironic that #fruitstandguy has to hold traffic so the cops can get through the intersection of 66th and Broadway since there are no cops directing traffic at the #Blackout pic.twitter.com/g1s5hCM7Wo
