Latest is the failure at 14th street was the original failure and the
rest cascaded from there.

>From CNN:

NEW YORK (CNN) -- A major power outage simultaneously struck several
large cities in the United States and Canada late Thursday afternoon.

Cities affected include New York; Boston, Massachusetts; Cleveland,
Ohio; Detroit, Michigan; Toronto, Ontario; and Ottawa, Ontario. The
power outage occurred shortly after 4 p.m.

no word on the cause(s), but a ConEd transformer on East 14th street was
said to be on fine...not sure how that could affect other cities,
though...
