ONE DAY IS REALLY NOTHING.
It's not about how long it was. It's mainly about where people were.
Most people were working in Manhattan at the time, the borough with all of the skyscrapers. HOWEVER, MOST of those people do not live in that borough.
Imagine, millions of people trapped on an island that is not their home, with so little light of any kind, from either moon or sun because of the tall buildings, trying to get home.
People were EVERYWHERE. In the streets, totally covering the sidewalks, on buses, on cars. Look at the pictures, you'll see. Look at all of those people trying to get home with no train. The subway probably helps more than half of the people get to work, I'd actually say around 75% of them use the subway to get to work. Without them, they have to walk 20 miles, probably the least they would have to walk, just to get home.
People slept on the streets because they had no money, because the ATM machines are obviously out, the hotels are completely booked by whoever got there first, and it is completely dark in one of the most lit cities in the world. People tried to get on buses, overloading them, but that still didn't work well. Without traffic lights, it was jsut hell out there. No movement. Easily hour delays on every bridge trying to get out of Manhattan. People had to walk, and they had to walk miles, across bridges and so forth. And even if they were lucky to get a ride, forget about it. You literally inched your way forward because of all the people in the streets and all of the other cars trying to get out. Bumper to Bumper for miles and miles, every which way you looked. Then you had to inch your way forward at intersections. There is no way of knowing who's turn it is to go in a city of over 8 million people, plus all of the workers. Easily 10 million right there. It was just a nightmare.
Sorry, but Bosnia without lights is nothing like New York City without lights, the Capital of the World.
