Yikes! Just about every commuter train in the Northeast is temporarily suspended as Amtrak is having power supply problems that are effecting the entire Northeast corridor, including Midtown Direct service and most of Jersey Transit. Well, at least the bars will be happy!
In an unrelated story, power is out to several building on 17th Street between 5th and 6th Avenues. When I asked a super if power was out he said yes several buildings, then told me something "just blew up". There are about 40 Con Ed vehicles on the scene.
