Massive Blackout Leaves Parts of NYC in the Dark for Hours According to the 'New York Post,' the outage left just over 70,000 without power this past Saturday night.
Initially, city officials say the outage was caused by a fire striking a transformer in the Upper West Side section of the borough.
By midnight on Saturday, power was restored to nearly all affected areas.
The outage also forced some shows on Broadway to be canceled when the incident occurred.
In addition, a Jennifer Lopez concert was halted at Madison Square Garden.
Lopez's has since been rescheduled for Monday night.
