CON EDISON ASKS CUSTOMERS WITH POWER IN NORTHWESTERN QUEENS TO
LEAVE A LIGHT ON OVERNIGHT
NEW YORK - Con Edison is requesting residents in the Long Island City, Sunnyside, Woodside, Hunters Point and Astoria neighborhoods of Queens who have electric service to please leave a light on overnight that will be visible from the street. In order to expedite restoration of power, company personnel will be surveying the area overnight to better identify blocks and homes that are without service. Leaving a visible light on will assist the company in restoring electricity to your neighbors. We appreciate your continued cooperation and patience during this difficult time.
