Part of New York City lost power today, leaving more than 51,000 people without power, mostly in the western part of Manhattan. About half of Times Square was also left without power today. As darkness descends, some beautiful skyline photos and videos are being shared. Here are the best.
It could be 12:30 a.m. Eastern or later before power is restored, according to Con Edison’s latest reports online. But on Twitter, they said they estimate that most customers will be restored by midnight. As the sun sets, people in the area are sharing some stunning photos of the skyline.

The good news is that a lot of Good Samaritans have been emerging during this blackout. Citizens stepped in and directed traffic to help keep pedestrians and drivers safe. And many Broadway performances that were canceled took to the streets so disappointed attendees could still enjoy some of the music.
So even though things may be tough with the power outage, many New Yorkers are stepping up and helping each other out, showing the real “power” in New York City.
Here are more photos and videos of the skyline during the outage.
