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.
