Parts of New York City have gone eerily dark as Sandy closes in.

The power company Con Edison says it has begun the process of shutting off electrical service to a portion of Lower Manhattan, a move that will protect both company and customer equipment, and allow for quicker restoration after Hurricane Sandy passes.


Water from the storm was also seen on security camera rushing into a New York subway station.
