Blackout: Five Year Anniversary

Five years ago today at 4:10PM, New York City lost power for 30 hours. After some mild panic in Midtown that the situation was terrorism-related, I went home to my then-apartment on Bleecker Street where my roommate and I sat on the fire escape and read by his leftover menorah candles. Days later we learned that apparently we were the only gays in town not dancing in the streets or enjoying giant impromptu sex parties in flashlight-lit bars. What did YOU do that night five years ago?
