New York has gone dark because of Hurricane Sandy, creating an eerie skyline.
The city that’s known for its bright lights went dark Monday night, leaving the Manhattan skyline an eerie shadow.
Electric company Con Edison experienced a major plant explosion, which shut off power in several areas, including Lower and Mid-Manhattan.
