More than 200,000 people in Manhattan were without power on Monday evening, leaving a significant portion of the borough below 39th Street in darkness, the New York Post reports.
According to Consolidated Edison (Con Ed), it could be up to four days until power is fully restored to some of these customers, Reuters notes.
While the power outage is certainly an inconvenience for many and even dangerous for some (the NYU Langone Medical Center was evacuated on Monday evening), it does offer a rare view of an unlit New York City skyline.
