The power went out at the Big Six apartment complex in Woodside last night leaving thousands in the dark, according to a spokesperson at the City Office of Emergency Management.

The high-rise apartment complex, located at 60-10 Queens Blvd., went dark just after 5 p.m. and the power was not fully restored until 2:40 a.m. today. Officials have not stated why the power went down but did note that the development has its own generator and is not part of the Con Edison power grid.

The FDNY said that at least one elevator was stuck as a result of the blackout. WABC-TV reported that three residents were rescued from stalled elevators.

The heat and water also went out, according to reports, which have now been restored.

The OEM spokesman said that MTA buses were brought in last night as a precaution, just in case people needed to be relocated elsewhere. They were not needed.

OEM also brought emergency light towers to the campus after sundown.

There is so much corruption in this building complex. There’s a super who is sleeping with a tenant and giving her a free room to rent, not to mention several other underhanded deeds. But they continue to get away with it since there are no independent investigations.


Uhh Let me guess. Homeless people fault?
Maybe Amazon’s fault. As a Trumptard I must always include Amazon in all of my posts.
