A 12-inch water main dating back to the 1800s burst at the corner of West Broadway and Murray streets around 3 a.m. The main flooded the street and the Chambers Street subway station.
Friday’s 12-inch water main break continued to cause problems for hundreds of residents in Washington Heights.
The main broke just before noon at West 152 Street and Saint Nicholas Avenue. The water has been shut off, but a gas main break in the area has Con Edison urging residents to contact them if they sense a problem.
Ongoing construction has made coming and going through the Holland Tunnel a bit tricky lately and come Monday it will get worse.
