Water Main Break Causes Havoc Where Was The Mayor?

A water main break caused havoc on the Upper West Side on Monday morning around 5 a.m. The streets were flooded between 61st to 65th on Broadway and Columbus Avenue. Firefighters checked basements for flooding. The flooding at poured into an underground garage attached to 44 West 62nd St., reaching over the tops of cars. At least 52 vehicles were damaged according to CBS.

The city said the rupture also caused significant damage to at least two other buildings in the area, so crews spent much of the day pumping out water.

Streets remained closed and subways are suspended in the area. Broadway is shut down in both directions between 61st and 72nd street, and the 1, 2 and 3 trains were suspended in both directions between 42nd Street – Times Square and 96thStreet. According to the city, the subway service has been restored. More than 500,000 gallons of water poured into the subway station.

Mayor Bill de Blasio tweeted that it would take several days to fix the broken water main, so some nearby streets would remain closed for a time. But where was the mayor?
