An EVG reader shared this from late this afternoon... when workers from Express Plumbing Sewer & Water Main Corp. were working outside 111 E. Seventh St. between Avenue A and First Avenue "going crazy. Cowboy style."
Per reader Andrew Bushong:
They dug two giant holes in the sidewalk and street. Around 5 p.m. they broke a main. City was called and now they're "supervising" the same plumbers while eating cupcakes. I'm a bit pissed as they've turned off water for the block on the eve of a blizzard.
And this has caused seceral businessed to close early, including Desnuda and...
Our EAST VILLAGE (125 E7) shop has closed for the night. Apparently a water main burst, somebody's water broke, or something. cc @evgrieve— Big Gay Ice Cream (@biggayicecream) March 14, 2017
