SUNNYSIDE, Queens — The hot temperatures can wreak havoc on the power grid — so much so that earlier this week, Con Edison had power outages.

Along 46th Street in Sunnyside, Queens, neighbors in one building are being asked to conserve power after a breakdown.

Hans Von Rittern contacted PIX11’s Greg Mocker about the temporary repair. A wire is running across the road and it is suspended between two trees. The wire is tied to the branches.

Con Edison’s media office said the arrangement is temporary and the landlord needs to address some issues in the basement before permanent repairs can be made.
