    A second power loss in four days crippled subway service, this time between Brooklyn and Manhattan at the height of the Thursday morning rush, the MTA said. 

    Service between the boroughs on the Nos. 2 and 3 lines was suspended in both directions shortly before 9:30 a.m. because of an outage between Borough Hall and Wall Street, the MTA said. Service was restored about an hour later, but riders were advised to expect ongoing delays and service changes.

    On Monday, a power outage affected service on the N and D lines in Brooklyn. That one was due to a Consolidated Edison power issue, the MTA said. It wasn't clear what caused the outage on Thursday. The MTA says it is investigating.
