.....in case the threads get separated, lower Manhattan has been without power for two days and so far there has been NO looting down there. The only report of looting that I've heard was nine or ten people in Brooklyn, near Coney Island, who were all arrested.
So the answer is, "so far, so good."
Just how will this play out? Once some things get settled, in the most populous city in the US, will the populace act? Are there going to be Katrina type violence or those baddies ruling the night. Heck, it's bad enough to many outside of the city to think it may degenerate into something else. Plus, you know its Halloween, how will that play into the big apple? -----Willy
