Water Main Break Creates Geyser in Crown Heights

Water shot stories into the high, at one point up to 50 feet, so forceful it uprooted a tree, after a huge main break in Brooklyn on the street near Albany Avenue that submerged part of Crown Heights and forced dozens of people from their homes before dawn.

At least two buildings were evacuated as water flooded the street just before 5 a.m. Thursday. Three hours later, it was spouting just as ferociously. The pressure had started to drop shortly before 9 a.m., the mess—major sidewalk damage and debris all over the road—lingered.
