New York City power outage: photos and videos show stranded crowds


A massive power outage struck uptown Manhattan in New York City Saturday that left scores of people not only without power, but also stranded in elevators, without traffic lights, and facing massive train delays.

Con Edison, the city’s power provider, said on the power outage map that more than 77,000 customers had lost service Saturday evening.

Those in the city’s Midtown and Upper West Side neighborhoods posted on social media to show the bizarre scenes that broke out during the outage as some of the city’s most iconic sites went dark.
