Water Streams Down Brooklyn Street Following Main Break

A water main break in Brooklyn’s Sunset Park shut down traffic and left residents without running water on November 24.

Brooklyn resident Dan Lavoie shared this footage from the intersection of 5th Avenue and 44th Street. He told Storyful his family were still without running water on Sunday afternoon. NYC Water earlier said that water had been shut off as the repair to the water main continued.

The New York Police Department (NYPD) said on Twitter that officers were distributing bottled water to residents in the area. Credit: Dan Lavoie via Storyful
