I remember this event very well. August 14, 2003. This Retro Report from The New York Times gives a great overview of the events of those few days.

Look at this video of Foursquare checkins during Hurricane Sandy. Watch as nearly the entire portion of Lower Manhattan goes without a single Foursquare checkin due to power being unavailable (and probably people realizing they don’t need to waste their cell batteries on useless checkins).
