Hier ein ähnlicher Artikel aus der New York Times von vorgestern (mittlerweile ist der Strom zumindest in der Lower East Side und im East Village wieder da):

"Eric Liebowitz, a photographer who lives on 19th Street, sat on the floor of the bank in a ski hat waiting for his phone to charge. “We are the dark people,” he said.

“The people uptown have no clue what’s going on down here,” he said — and he was enjoying himself, in a way. (...)

Some people said they had been turned away from hotel lobbies, other banks and cafes near 40th Street when they asked to charge their phones. It was as if, said Gabriella Sonam, a massage therapist who had biked up from the East Village, no one empowered in these places with electricity even knew a national emergency was going on just across the street.

“I’m not traumatized by the storm; I’m traumatized by the indifference,” Ms. Sonam said, near tears."

Viel krasser als Manhattan hat es andere Gegenden getroffen, die zum Teil nicht so im Fokus der Medien stehen, ein Beispiel ist Piermont, ein kleiner Ort oberhalb von New York City:

New York diskutiert jetzt endlich über den Klimawandel (O-Ton eines Kommentators in der Times: "Erst wenn er uns voll in die Fresse schlägt fangen wir an darüber zu reden"), das ist was Mitt Romney dazu zu sagen hat:
