Power on in East Village?

Am supposed to be flying into LGA tomorrow..maybe not. Haven't heard from my son in the East Village yet. Does anyone know if power is on there yet? Thanks

It's spotty. Some blocks are ON, some have no power. I just called 3 of my favorite East Village restaurants to see if they were open tonight -- 2 had power, one did not. The rest of Manhattan is the same way.

We're on the upper west side and have power back, but it has gone off twice and come back on, my guess is that the system is a little fragile right now.

We went to NJ last night to see the city in complete darkness, one of the stragest sites I have ever seen.

Going to keep the candles and flashlights handy for a while and the fingers crossed.

LaGuardia, Newark and JFK are a MESS, delays both incoming and outgoing. Call your airline before you leavefor the airport.

I just was watching the news and the power is back on in The City. Times Square looks back to normal. The cabs and people are out on the streets, and businesses are open. Currently the subways are not in operation, but they are expeced to be in operation by tomorrow.
