Post Hoboken water main break syndrome

Post Hoboken water main break syndrome {P.H.W.M.B.S.}

This is how First St. looked after they paved over the road which partially collapsed due to the water main break earlier this week.

Maybe that’s the plan? Just break all the water mains, and get new streets at no charge?

Either way – when the city eventually implements that stupid “wayfinding” sign program – perhaps they should add the locations of all historical water main breaks? It’ll be a tourist industry soon enough.
