Any idea why Con Ed would have such heavily armed NYPD personnel outside the substation on East 14th Street and Avenue C....?

saw this twice last week as well...maybe they're getting threats? wouldn't be surprising considering how many people are still without power in lower manhattan

For two days now there have been two traffic guards on the intersection of 8th and C, next to the police station. When I inquired about their presence one of them said "We are here in case of an emergency. In case of emergencies."
So he either didn't know why he was assigned his post or he didn't want to tell me. Judging by his unsure answer I think it was the former.

Maybe people are getting angry when they receive their bills. I know I was.

paranoid about the power supply to wall street, same reason why they blocked the 15st FDR exit years ago (besides making the road a nice parking lot for con-ed) - Bobby L
