Today In Electric History

New York City during a massive blackout as seen from Long Island City on November 9, 1965.
The buildings with lights have emergency power generators. Nearly 30 million in the Northeast were left
without power for 13 hours following a series of errors that led to the blackout.

I remember something like this, but it was after 2001 and before 2005.

The Con Ed transformer at 14th and FDR Drive exploded. No power for a while.
