Exactly 42 years after a massive blackout caused by a lightning strike at an electrical substation plunged New York City into darkness for 25 hours (with looters raiding 1,600 stores and over a thousand fires set across the city)...

Several subway stations are blacked out...

Many people have reportedly been stuck in the elevators across the city’s high-rises.

The iconic giant monitors at the Times Square are also pitch black, with half of the area affected.
