Parts of the West Side of Manhattan in New York fell into darkness on Saturday night due to a power failure. Without streetlights or stoplights some good Samaritans took to the streets to help out, using lightsabers to help direct traffic.
Some in the city, including The New York Times reporter Liam Stack, took photos of the Jedi in action. “Now that it’s getting dark the civilians directing traffic in Hell’s Kitchen are using whatever light they can get, including cellphones and… light sabers #NYCblackout,” Stack tweeted with a photo on Twitter.
