ConEd says most of lower Manhattan will be getting its power back tomorrow night and I’ve never been so grateful for Thomas Edison. An endpoint in near sight confirms how easy the very lucky selection of powerless nomads successfully seeking refuge uptown have had it. Notwithstanding sympathetic consideration for the uncomfortably large number of people who lost their homes and will continue on without power for far longer than lower Manhattan residents have, here is a question I posed on Twitter last night in direct relation to the uptown downtown disconnect and subsequent converging melting pot.
What would happen if the current situation were reversed and uptown lost power while downtown maintained its cool (pun intended,) and continued on normally?
Also, how many people are hating Snap! right now?
Boastful, boastful, boastful.
