The outage was having a widespread effect, with the NY subway system also experiencing power outages in its stations, the agency managing the trains said.

One of the earlier blackouts was reported right around the time a transformer fire happened nearby, but it's unclear if that was the cause.

It said the outage extended from Fifth Avenue west to the Hudson River, and from the west 40s north to 72nd Street.

Additionally, the outage closed down a Jennifer Lopez concert, the second of her two-night "It's My Party" tour run in New York City.

The outages were affecting "multiple lines", the Metropolitan Transport Authority said.

'Several stations are now without power and are being bypassed by all trains, ' it posted on Twitter. "That's what we noticed first", she said. We will share more information as it comes in.

Mayor Bill de Blasio said on Twitter that the outage was caused by a "manhole fire", but later told CNN it was under investigation. "Hadestown" cast members also staged a street-side performance.

A reporter with the New York Times said that the buildings were blacked out, but some of the electrical billboards are back on as of 8:00 p.m.

Images on Twitter showed darkened subway stations and inoperable traffic lights.

Emerging from a subway station next to Central Park, Jeff O'Malley, a consultant who lives in Manhattan, said he was stuck in a subway vehicle for more than an hour.

'We were stuck for about 75 minutes, ' said the 57-year-old consultant. It advised people to stay away from underground stations.

Videos are emerging online of volunteers directing traffic. This also just happened to be the 42nd anniversary of the 1977 blackout in NY that lasted 25 hours.
