Repair work continues on broken water main

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.

    Archeologists say they've solved a mystery that started with the rebuilding at ground zero. During the excavation at the World Trade Center Site, workers uncovered part of an old ship. No one knew where it came from. Now after years of study, researchers believe the sloop dates back to 1773, built from wood harvested from Pennsylvania, the same kind used to build Independence Hall.
