Last night I decided to cross the Brooklyn Bridge and walk around the financial district, which still doesn't have power.
As I got closer, I saw downtown Manhattan almost entirely lit by headlights of passing cars.

Downtown Manhattan, seen from the Brooklyn Bridge.
The streets were empty. The Municipal Building had a gothic, Dark Knight vibe.

The municipal building, blacked out.
The New York Stock Exchange, which has been running on generator power, had some Halloween-themed lighting. But it felt more spooky than festive.
