Thirty-nine years on

The NY City blackout of 1977 began on July 13, during a heat wave, and power was not restored until the following day.  The Brooklyn Visual Gallery has a collection of blackout pictures taken in Bushwick, one of the neighborhoods most severely impacted by fires, looting and other property damage.  The photographer is unknown.  Here are a couple of shots, & you can check out the rest of the collection here.
