NY1 At 20: 2006 Report Revisits Queens Blackout
In mid-July 2006, Queens saw one of the worst power outages in the city's history. In the midst of a heat wave, a major blackout hit LaGuardia Airport, subway lines and thousands of people in Astoria, Long Island City and Sunnyside. Some were without power for a week or more. On the fifth day of the outage, NY1's Molly Kroon went to Astoria to speak with frustrated, overheated residents about how they were getting by and what they thought of the city, Con Edison, and those long dry ice lines.
