AND THEN--FINALLY-THE CITY LIGHTS CAME BACK ON

LIGHTING-UP TIME: This sequence of pictures, looking downtown fom Rockefeller Center, shows how light and life slowly came back to the heart of Manhattan. At left only one office building on Avenue of the Americas blazed with light, as headlights created a pattern of light-streaks. In center picture, more buildings had electricity but the Empire State Building in center background was only a dark silhouette. Fifteen minutes later the 102-story building dominated the skyline with its television antenna topped with a bank of aircraft-warning lights.
