Huge Water Main Break Floods Jerome Ave.

A massive water main break in Mount Hope this morning has flooded a portion of Jerome Avenue and surrounding side streets, around 177th Street, NBC is reporting.

Check out the video at the link--we're not talking about a little leak here--the streets are completely washed out and water is practically covering some parked cars.

Because of the break, the MTA says riders should expect delays on the 4 line, and there will be no service in both directions between the 167th Street Station and the Bedford Park Boulevard-Lehman College Station. Delays are also posted for the BX1, BX2, BX3, BX18, BX32, BX36, BX40, BX42 and BXM4 buses.

We'll keep you updated as we hear more.


  1. I live at Grand Concourse and 162nd St. This morning we had NO water. This isn't just street flooding and traffic delays, this is no toilets flushing, no showers, no running water.

  2. Many restaurants in the Jerome neiborhood lost a lot of business. Foodstuff were thrown away due to contamination as a result of water in the basement. The street was close and the gasline was turned off by ConEd. I hope these small businesses will be compensated in no time.
