The NYC Blackout of 1977

How many people remember the blackout of 1977? I remember it well living in Jersey where the power was out also. The blackout, Son of Sam, Reggie Jackson and the Yankees, it was an interesting time.

Hell, I remember it well.

I also remember the great North-east "black out" of November 1965.

I lived in North NJ and was a police officer. Fortunately almost everyone in my area then acted civil.

Yeah, the birth rate spiked 9 months after that meltdown. Not everyone panicked methinks.
