The New York City Blackouts were the greatest hardship ever suffered by humanity. It was like the Holocaust times a billion with a pinch of The Great Depression and some Hurricane Katrina jimmies sprinkled all over the top. Plus, having to walk over the bridges was like The Trail of Tears and the Bataan Death March combined, on a bridge. But the great people of New York, the greatest city on Earth, persevered.
Coping With Inconvenience
Some New Yorkers were forced to eat dish after dish of ice cream at their corner bodegas, in a furious race against time and the fiendish powers of meltiness. Others, looking to beat the heat, retreated to Brooklyn rooftops where their jazz fusion jams became a freedom song, a rallying battle cry against the horrors of the blackout.
