NYC power outage wreaks havoc, Broadway, Dave Chappelle & JLo affected

Times Square Power Out

"We're getting reports of power outages in station complexes throughout Manhattan", the Metropolitan Transportation Authority said on Twitter.

Parts of New York City went dark Saturday in a massive power outage that affected thousands of people.

People gathered around Rockefeller Center and Times Square wandered the streets as traffic lights, restaurants and the usually illuminated advertising screens in the area all went dark. "It's equipment issues, and we are working to restore customers".

People use their phones as flashlights during a widespread power outage in NY on Saturday, June 13.

But when it appeared the problem was getting worse, it set off a scramble among city and state officials who feared that the outages could expand further and the mayor decide to return to NY.

New Yorkers said firefighters and cops were everywhere throughout the city.

There are also no working street lights in those affected sections of the city.

Of the 38,000 customers without power in NY, majority were in Midtown Manhattan and the Upper West Side, utility company ConEdison said.

Subway service was stalled in Manhattan and Queens on all the lines designated by letters, which the MTA calls its "B Division".

The FDNY responded to a transformer fire at W 64th Street and West End Avenue, the department announced on Twitter.

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

According to ConEdison, which provides power for New York City and Westchester County, approximately 42,500 people have been impacted by the outage which the New York City Police Department says stretches from 5th Avenue to the Hudson River and West 40s to 72nd Street.

At Madison Square Garden, Jennifer Lopez's Saturday night show was evacuated due to safety concerns following the blackout, The Hollywood Reporter says. Apparently there's a blackout in midtown Manhattan. At first she thought something happened at Trump International Hotel and Tower, she said. We will share more information as it comes in.
