As power began to be restored in parts of the city, shouts of celebration could be heard. She later yells at the TV, "We're gonna do the show on Monday!" Five of those networks are now restored, Con Ed said.

"I was alone and I couldn't get to everything, so they stole my stuff", she said, adding that she had no idea who the people who took her things may have been. "You clearly have to be in the city to - you know - do your job". "And you have to be on-site".

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, who was criticized for being on the presidential campaign trail when the outage happened, both said they would be directing agencies under their control to look into what happened. "I can not tell you - on the second night of performing at MSG after such an wonderful night last night, I just don't even know what to say", she said. You weren't going anywhere if couldn't go through Manhattan. The important thing is to have a hand on the wheel make sure things are moving effectively and communicate to people.

Cuomo also urged people to stay indoors as of 10 PM ET despite power being almost entirely restored, arguing that there were safety concerns due to ongoing infrastructure issues.

"Our first responders did an wonderful job", he said.

"We're trying to get people out of subways". We saw the exact opposite, actually.

Hotel staff had asked them not to go inside as there were no lights for them to see by and the elevators weren't working, 16-year-old Spanish tourist Alba Moreno said.

Con Edison is launching a full investigation into what caused the outage. And the system has to be designed in a way so that if one substation fails it does not domino. "We just can't have a system that does this". "It is too risky, the potential for public safety risk and chaos is too high, we just can't have a system that does that, it's that simple at the end of the day".
