View of darkened streets in the West Village, normally a very busy restaurant and bar area. Most of lower Manhattan (below 35th Street) is without power due to the failure of an electrical transformer during the storm. The shop in foreground is being powered by an emergency generator. The only other illumination is from a car head light. Tropical Storm Sandy hit New York and other parts of the north eastern United States on the evening of 29 October 2012.
