A fiery sunrise courtesy of the Con Ed plant



The sunrise on this cold, dry day combined with the steam from the Con Ed power plant on 14th Street and Avenue C made for some photogenic moments this morning.

Tonight's Con Ed blue light special brings back Sandy memories

The Con Ed transformer explosion tonight in Astoria brought back some memories ... to when the transformer blew at the Con Ed plant on 14th Street and Avenue C the night of Superstorm Sandy in October 2012.

EVG regular William Klayer took this shot at nearly the moment he heard the explosion about 8:13 that night in 2012, bathing the sky in an eerie gray-blue light similar to what people saw tonight ...



And the second explosion the night of Sandy, which KO'd the power to lower Manhattan (as seen from Brooklyn)...

Steamy Friday



EVG regular Salim shares this photo from Tompkins Square Park this morning... with the always photogenic Con Ed power plant in the background. As of this writing, it's 18 degrees, which according to the Weather Channel "feels like" 12.

The breaker pop heard 'round the neighborhood


[Photo from Feb. 16]

We talked with several people about the noise/bang/pop/explosion at the Con Ed power plant and subsequent flicker in the power on Saturday night... it didn't go unnoticed (as is usually the case) ...




The Villager talked with Con Ed spokesperson Sidney Alvarez to see what happened at the plant on East 14th Street and Avenue C.

“Basically, in a nutshell, we had some equipment malfunction within our facility. In a nutshell, a breaker popped — and the cause was freezing rain.”

The Fire Department responded but there was no fire, and there were no injuries, Alvarez reported.

The spokesperson didn’t disagree that East Villagers had likely heard a thunderous bang.

“I’m sure they would have heard something,” he said.

As for a white flash in the sky, he said, there was no information regarding that in an internal report he was reading from, but he didn’t deny that it could have happened.

“But there was no fire, no spark,” he noted.
