Double Water Main Break on Park Ave

2/11/2010 Update:

Never ending headaches

In what I thought was just the same water main(s) giving area residents problems, there are additional breaks on Park Avenue, as reported by Hoboken411 reader Elizabeth. She said that “I lived in NYC for years, and NEVER lost water even though the pipes were just as old…”

Are you suffering from the ancient Hoboken infrastructure as well?

Not good timing whatsoever!

Boy, Park Avenue in Hoboken is on a streak of bad luck the last week… a couple fires, and now a double water-main break between 8th and 9th Streets.

United Water is on the way, and HPD was successful in having cars moved, in order to avoid towing them.

This town is falling to pieces, and it’s only getting worse. Batten down the hatches!

I was about to ask as well- do we have any updates? I am out if town currently, but live around the corner. Is there any information about what blocks are affected?

This water main break really bums me out…I’ve gone to the tap about 3 times out of habit to find nothing comes out 🙁 I happen to be staying at home today so I know it’s been out since about noon. I’ve been at this current apt for about 2.5 years but something has gone awry with the surrounding water mains/pipes at least 4 times by now but not right before a big storm is scheduled to roll in. Has anyone had any experience with this or would know if the area expects to have water back before it snows?
