Need some WWII info

It truly is a little detail, but one of those things that can be fairly important.

Anyway, I have Googled my brains out, as well as dragging a few books down off the shelves, and been directed to a book at Amazon that might actually be helpful, only it won't be available until January... And basically have gotten nowhere.

So, my question is: Would blackout restrictions have still been in effect in New York City, December 1944? What I have found is that these restrictions continued in London until 1945, but I'm wondering if they might have been lifted earlier for the East Coast of the United States. My story works either way, if they were still in blackout mode or not; it's just a matter of hitting the right atmosphere.
