Must Read

From NotifyNYC: Due to a possible water main break in the area of East Houston Street and Ludlow Street in Manhattan, all lanes of East Houston Street are currently closed in both directions between Allen Street and Essex Street. Expect traffic and emergency personnel in the area. Consider alternate routes.

UPDATED 1:34 p.m. The water main break happened around 11 a.m., and led to a 20×20 street collapse. It had a big impact on Katz’s Deli. Owner Jake Dell told 1010 WINS: “It’s literally a sinkhole… The thing is the entire width of the street and it’s completely caved in.” Katz’s suffered some flooding but remains open.  The situation is causing concern at the highest levels!

UPDATED 2:03 p.m. NY1 reports that 13 buildings are now without water. The 20 inch pipe was installed in 1959.
