If there's another blackout in the city, two new high-powered generators will help keep the lights on at Grand Central Terminal.

Governor Andrew Cuomo announced Wednesday the installation of the emergency generators, which will bolster Grand Central's existing backup systems.

Also installed were fuel tanks, switchgear, huge fans and air ducts.

The $17 million initiative was mostly funded by a federal grant, and is part of an effort to strengthen critical infrastructure against extreme weather in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.
