Breaking News: Blackout On Upper East Side

Apparently the mid-90s heat was too much for the electric grid to take — is reporting there’s a blackout on the Upper East Side right now.


From a tipster: “My wife on 84th and Lex says power is out in the whole neighborhood. ABC7 just broke news that from the South Bronx to East 13th on the East Side is experiencing sporadic outages. My doorman says that a grid blew on the UES.”
