Manhattan Power Outage Knocks out Subways, Elevators

Times Square Power Out

New Yorkers said firefighters and cops were everywhere throughout the city. The photo was taken from Jersey City, New Jersey.

Energy company Con Edison said 42,000 customers were without power, majority in Midtown Manhattan and the Upper West Side.

A power outage gripped New York's Manhattan on Saturday, sending Broadway theaters plunging into darkness, subways grinding to a halt and flicking off billboards in Times Square.

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority tweeted that there were outages at various underground stations. De Blasio did not indicate where the fire occurred or if anyone was injured.

Images on Twitter showed darkened subway stations and inoperable traffic lights.

The Fire Department said it was responding to a transformer fire at West 64th Street and West End Avenue.

Officials with Con Edison later tweeted that they were working to restore electricity to customers and businesses primarily on Manhattan's Upper West Side.

The outage also impacted several subway stations in the city, forcing passengers on trains at the time the power cut to be escorted through tunnels and dark stations by MTA employees.

While trains are still running despite the outage, the stations without power are being bypassed by trains until power is restored.

A number of Saturday night shows were delayed, with theatregoers left waiting in the streets outside venues.

A blackout affects buildings in the Manhattan borough of NY, U.S, July 13, 2019. Manhattanhenge began at 8:20 p.m. local time.

Many Broadway musicals and plays canceled their Saturday evening shows, including "Hadestown", which last month won the Tony Award for best musical.

At Rockefeller Center, traffic lights were out.

The electricity cuts come on the anniversary of a massive power failure in 1977 that plunged the NY skyline into darkness and triggered widespread looting and arson.
