Repair work continues on broken water main

Posted: Updated:
NEW JERSEY (MYFOXNY.COM) - It could take several days to repair a broken water main pipe that flooded a portion of 5th Ave. in Greenwich Village.

The main broke around 1:40 a.m. Wednesday, flooding 5th Ave. between 13th and 14th streets.

Subway service on the B, C, D, E, F and M trains was suspended until late Wednesday morning. Bus service on several lines has been detoured through the area.

Repair crews remain on the scene and are working around the clock to repair the 137 year old pipe.

On Wednesday, students and staff at P.S. 226 at 12 W12th St. were relocated to the HS for Health Professions and Human Service at 345 W15th St. The school had no water service due to the pipe rupture.

The MTA continues to warns bus riders to anticipate the service changes in the area.

Detour is as follows:

M1, M2, M3 and M5 Southbound: Via 5 Av, left on 23 St, right on Park Av South into Broadway and regular route.

    A dance party for kids and tweens looks like a rave or perhaps a wild night at the club. But actually, many of the people at this party probably just learned how to tie their shoes. Twin brothers Tyler and Tristin recently had a FUZIPOP party in Manhattan to celebrate their 10th birthday. Never heard of a FUZIPOP party?
