The lights and air conditioning blinked back on across the Upper West Side Saturday night after more than three hours of darkness following a major blackout.
Con Edison crews had restored five of six transformers as of around 10:30 p.m., and the remaining customers without power appear to be south of the neighborhood.
The blackout had stretched from the West 40s to 72nd Street across every avenue in the neighborhood. Even after most power was restored, service to the A and C lines remained out in the neighborhood.
There was some celebrating when the power returned.
