It was 40 years ago that the great blackout of 1977 occurred. Our neighbors seen at their best, and worst; as a city already on the edge of economic collapse, stalked by a serial killer, and in the middle of a heatwave was plunged headlong into the heart of darkness accompanied by looting and arson. We're looking back at a night that changed New York.
