NY1 showed water main break 3 years ago - still a disaster 2nd Ave. 7th Street
http://www.ny1.com/content/69978/east-village-water-main-break-leaves-thousands-without-water In my opinion Cooper Union's mega sized studio build caused this medium size water main break that looked like the East River came to 2nd Avenue. You can see a diverse group of East Villager including me interviewed.
The intersection still has not healed and is as dangerous as hell.
There years and the city can't solve this problem. I photographed a custom street conditions car courtesy of the tax payers parked in front of the crater and the city gov worker no where to be found.
Also note 2 small businesses there are now gone. See my other YouTubes from around the corner for the streets being a mess for years and my blog for photos of the area looking like a bomb exploded with Con Ed workers camped out and Bloomberg had not right to push a reckless tsunami of development city wide catering to rich developers including NYU, NY Law, Cooper Union, Columbia U., Donald Trump and every reckless idiot that insisted on busting through our zoning and weighing way to heavy on our infrastructure. http://suzannahbtroy.blogspot.com/2010/05/nyc-gov-street-conditions-observation.html http://suzannahbtroy.blogspot.com/2010/05/gas-smell-st-marks-infrastructure.html http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q-UbQ3rXCpo Mike Bloomberg's Streets of NY part 1 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q-UbQ3rXCpo part 2 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RuK8u8Pp7L4 Here a fire truck's front wheel falls in to a hole (infrastructure problem) in the street upper west sdie
