NYC in Darkness

New York is a resilient city and the blackout Saturday shows just how wonderful the city really is.

“Manhattan power outage is believed have been caused by a transformer fire at 54th St. and West End Ave.,” NBC News reported being told by a senior city official.

Social media exploded with speculation Saturday evening as massive power outage blacks out portions of New York City. Even the New York City subway was shut down. Times Square was blacked out as well.


It was obvious that some New York residents were prepared or at least able to make due with no power.


As of 11:45 p.m. New York City officials say all power has been restored.
