An all-hands-on-deck effort mopped up an enormous mess at 99th Street and Broadway on Thursday, so that the city was able to restore water service by 9:30 p.m., a Department of Environmental Protection spokesman told us. The water main break flooded the area and caused police to close off two blocks of Broadway for part of the day.
“These city workers have been outstanding,” wrote one local who watched the entire job and tweeted updates about it at @above_96th. “And the coordination among agencies was remarkable.”
