Thanks! Walking over the Brooklyn Bridge is definitely a must do activity in NY. Great views all around, and great food and stuff to do within easy walking distance in both directions. Certain parts of the city were completely black and almost abandoned, TriBeCa, Lower East Side, West Village. Nothing. Just dead. Along the main arteries such as around the Flat Iron, it was just lines of taxis and police cars making their way through the streets. All the lights were out, but they seemed to figure things out ok with out them.
