Power restored at Grand Central Terminal

- MTA Metro-North Railroad announced Tuesday morning that full power has been restored to Grand Central Terminal. The railroad's ticket machines, website, Train Time app and departure boards are all operating normally. The railroad also has been able to restore full lighting to the entrance at 47th Street and Madison Avenue.

A burst water pipe led to a power outage at the Manhattan transit hub on Monday, closing businesses on the lower level and sending passengers walking in the dark.

The power went out throughout Grand Central around 9: 30 a.m. Monday morning.

The lights in the main concourse were being powered by a backup generator as workers pumped out the flooded area and make repairs.

The Grand Central Market was also completely in the dark.

Ticket kiosks were also out but commuters were able to purchase a ticket at a ticket window.

All trains were running on schedule, however, because the lower level was shut down, trains on the lower tracks were being rerouted to upper tracks.
