NYC Dark, The Manhattan Power Outage After Hurricane Sandy

“NYC Dark” is a short video about the power outage that kept Lower Manhattan strangely dark after Hurricane Sandy. The video features photos and commentary by photographer Jared Levy and time-lapses by Michael Marantz. The video was produced by the creative studio Already Alive.

Seeing lower Manhattan without power was a surreal experience. This is traditionally a city that never sleeps. One in which the lights are always on. One that is always bustling with people. When the lights went out it was wholly different. This piece is meant to capture and relay the feeling of what it was like to walk around the darkened streets of lower Manhattan.
