This combination of photos shows above, lower Manhattan dark after the hybrid storm Sandy on Monday, Oct. 29, 2012, and below a fully lit skyline on Jan. 6, 2012, both seen from the Brooklyn borough of New York. In an attempt to lessen damage from saltwater to the subway system and the electrical network beneath the city's financial district, New York City's main utility cut power to about 6,500 customers in lower Manhattan. But a far wider swath of the city was hit with blackouts caused by flooding and transformer explosions. (AP Photo)

More than 200,000 people in Manhattan were without power on Monday evening, leaving a significant portion of the borough below 39th Street in darkness, the New York Post reports.

According to Consolidated Edison (Con Ed), it could be up to four days until power is fully restored to some of these customers, Reuters notes.

While the power outage is certainly an inconvenience for many and even dangerous for some (the NYU Langone Medical Center was evacuated on Monday evening), it does offer a rare view of an unlit New York City skyline.

On Monday evening, after power became unavailable for many in Manhattan, many took to social media to share their pictures of the dark skyline.
