New York Power Outage Impacts Broadway, Rockefeller Center

7/13/2019 by Associated Press , Trilby Beresford

Power reportedly went out early Saturday evening at much of Rockefeller Center and reached the Upper West Side.

Authorities say a widespread power shortage in Manhattan has left businesses without electricity, elevators stuck and subway cars stalled.

Power reportedly went out early Saturday evening at much of Rockefeller Center and reached the Upper West Side. NBC Universal editor Lydia Robertson tweeted, "Blackout at Rockefeller Center, NBC! We are running on generators!"

A diner on Broadway at West 69th Street lost its lights, as did other surrounding businesses.

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority tweeted that there were outages at various underground stations. The MTA is working with Con Edison to determine the cause.

Con Edison did not immediately respond to phone messages from The Associated Press, though they tweeted that 42,000 customers in the Westside of Manhattan are currently without power.

According to the New York City Fire Department, currently addressing a large volume of calls, the loss of power is from 5th Avenue to the Hudson River, and from the West 40s to 72nd Street.

During the outage, which comes on the anniversary of the 1977 New York City outage that left most of the city without power, local residents and businesses took to social media to share their concern and update the situation.
