According to city ficials, a transformer fire may have been to blame for the outage which began at 6:47 p.m. The result affected subway stations, traffic signals, the signature lights Times Square and 42nd Street, and even caused several Broadway shows to cancel performances due to loss power. The outage would go on to make the length Fifth Avenue and the Hudson River and from 42nd to 72nd street.

NYPD's commissioner James O'Neill has ruled out any criminal activity in relation to the outage and so far, no fatalities or injuries have been attached to the blackout.

“While fortunately, no injuries occurred as a result this incident, the fact that it happened at all is unacceptable,” said Governor Andrew Cuomo. “I am directing the Department Public Service to investigate and identify the exact cause the outages to help prevent an incident this magnitude from happening again. Until the recovery is complete, we will continue to take all necessary actions to ensure the safety and security New Yorkers.”
