One Candle Power

For those wondering what New York City is like in lower Manhattan, try no electricity, no heat, no hot water, no subway, no lights, no Internet for most. No elevators, no cooking for many, no refrigeration. It’s cold, dark, and primitive. It has been days and will be days longer. For now, it’s One Candle Power :(

  7. Brian, I don’t even know what to say. The pictures out of NY are overwhelming. We hope it all gets better soon!

  8. Hi Brian, I have been following your blog many years and it always inspires me to go places in NYC when we are there on vacation. Having just been there in early October it’s hard to believe the pictures we see on TV. We are thinking of you and are glad to read that you are okay.

  9. It’s very hard to believe NYC is in such a state. My six year old girl is very worried if the storm did any harm to the statue of liberty. Stay safe ! We all here from the lone star state are hopping for a speedy recovery of NYC.

  13. And this was only a cat 1 hurricane. What would have happened if it was a cat 3? It’s time to overhall the entire electric system here one day. Nobody wants to do it.

  14. So much for public utilities being operated for profit.

    Bri, been worried sick about you so glad to see you around, be safe please!

  16. Myra Beaulieu says:

    OMG I pray the Lord will helps—I’m so pleased to see your up and running!!!

    Thanks for the well wishes. We are ok now in Lower Manhattan – power has been restored to most areas, but other areas of NYC are devastated, without power, heat, running water, or even homes having been flooded or completely destroyed. It was a little weird not having the city up and running at its usual pace but we are slowly recovering, some parts more quickly than others.

    Hello Brian

    I am a graphic artist working in Montréal, we are publishing a maagazine called Convivium.
    I was looking for a one candle image to illustrate the celebration of our First Year of publication.

    I just found your candle, andI think it would fit perfectly on our editorial page, so I am asking if it’s possible to publish it. It would be i black and white, but still verypowerful, because the contat is good.

    So let me know if we have the agreement for publication.
    Also if we can get a bette quality image (300 dpi, is best)

    I am a Drop Box user, and you can get back to me at lgodbout@destudio.ca

    Thank you
    All Best
