We’ve all heard New York described as the city that never sleeps. Spend just a short amount of time in NYC and the perpetual activity occurring throughout the city is obvious. What isn’t so apparent is how much energy it takes to keep NYC going and exactly where that energy comes from. If you remember the Northeast blackout of 2003, NYC was crippled by some sagging wires in Ohio that shorted out on tree branches. The 2013/2014 California drought is likely to mean higher costs for produce and dairy items clear across the US, all the way to the east coast. The supply chain feeding NYC extends far beyond the borders of the five boroughs, making the city dependent on a widely distributed array of resources, for better or worse.
