Seeing lower Manhattan without power is a surreal experience. This is the city that never sleeps after all. The city “Bright Lights, Big City” moniker was created for. A city hustling and bustling with a million different people rich in a thousand different cultures. There is something completely eerie about seeing NY City without the lights.
The producer of this short film was aiming to capture and then relay the feeling of what it was like to walk around the darkened streets of lower Manhattan.
