  • Times Square blackout WABC

"We are working to restore power to 42,000 customers primarily in the Westside of Manhattan", the company said on Twitter.

Without traffic lights, some New Yorkers stepped in to help, as captured on social media. "It sounds like it is addressable in a reasonable amount of time".

The Daily Beast reports that the source of the outage is a blown transformer at West End Avenue and West 64th Street, but neither ConEd, NYPD or NYFD have confirmed what caused the break in service.

The Upper West Side of the Manhattan borough of NY is dark after a transformer fire caused a power outage and left businesses without electricity, elevators stuck and subway cars stalled.

"People from home were texting us, asking, 'Are you OK?'" said Dara Campbell, 40.

The outages were affecting "multiple lines", the Metropolitan Transport Authority said.

A diner on Broadway at West 69th Street lost its lights, as did other surrounding businesses. "Hadestown" cast members also staged a street-side performance.

Jeff O'Malley said he was stuck in a subway auto for more than an hour.

Dark buildings along a street are seen near Times Square area, as a blackout affects buildings and traffic during widespread power outages in the Manhattan borough.

"We were stuck for about 75 minutes", said O'Malley, 57.

Manhattan residents and visitors took to Twitter to post photos of the city without power, including eerie photos and video of pitch-black subway stations.

Police officers waved people out of the Columbus Circle subway station around 7:30 p.m.

"New York is so scary there are so many firefighters and cops and people are screaming", one wrote.

Saturday's outage occurred on the 42nd anniversary of a NY blackout that crippled the city during a heat wave on July 13, 1977.

Power was not restored until the next day.
