SPUYTEN DUYVIL - Con Edison has agreed to work to reduce power outages that have plagued Spuyten Duyvil for years.

Residents say seven buildings in the neighborhood have had 16 power outages in the past 34 months. Neighbors believe the issues are caused by the buildings being powered by overhead power lines that cannot support the power needs for the buildings.

Con Ed says it will install an alternate source of power to the neighborhood in hopes of reducing outages. The utility says the work will take about a year and should be done around Christmas.
