Various high angle and aerial shots of the city of New York at night, with numerous twinkling neon lights. Commentator explains that as part of the National Economy Campaign, lighting restrictions are coming into force even on Broadway and Times Square.
All the lights gradually go out until just a few are left. Cars move along the streets slowly with their headlights on; crowds of people are seen walking along the sidewalks in the half-light. The last few lights go out, leaving the city in complete darkness.
