Parts of midtown Manhattan were slowed to a crawl tonight as a widespread power outage affected parts of New York City. Some of the city’s most bustling neighborhoods, including the theater district and Upper West Side, were left without power, and a number of subway lines were forced to either skip stations or halt operations.
Con Edison, the city’s power supplier, said on Twitter it was responding to the situation, although for many residents and tourists trapped in the darkness, it was not responding quickly enough.
We are responding to extensive outages on the Westside of Manhattan. We will share more information as it comes in. Thank you.
