A-Let me just give you a quick thing.

Q-Okay.

A-We had the blackout. People were coming out of the trains. They couldn't get rides. I was a young guy at the times, and I was picking up girls.

Q-Which blackout was this?

A-Actually, both of them.

Q-I think what was really amazing to me was that I was at that time I was traveling from one area to another, and I wound up on the BQE. I had to stop the car. I had to stop the car because when I looked to the left, I saw the whole city without a light. And it was today, till today it's the most breathtaking thing, it's the most amazing thing, I've ever seen in my whole life.

Q-You said you were picking up girls?

A-Yeah (laughter)

Q-Did the blackout help or hurt that cause?

A-Oh, it was wonderful, because the trains weren't running (laughter).
