NYC blackoutPower was starting to come back to parts of New York on a hot Saturday night as ConEdison restored electrical service on the west side of Manhattan after widespread power outages canceled shows and sent tens of thousands of people onto darkened streets, officials said.

There were 30,000 customers without power in New York, most of them in Midtown Manhattan and the Upper West Side, utility company ConEdison said. At its peak, the number was about 61,000.
"Power is being restored on Manhattan's Upper West Side and we're estimating most customers will be restored at midnight," it said.
Just before the lights and air conditioners began to come back on, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said the numbers of customers without power had soared from 20,000 right after the blackout started because transformers kept tripping.
Update: At 10:43 pm. five of the six grids that had been affected were back on.
