A broken water main in New York turns the Upper West Side into a lake

A water main went haywire in New York around 5am this morning, creating this wet scene in the Upper West Side.

According to CNN:

It caused significant delays on the 1, 2 and 3 subway lines and street closures on Broadway from 72nd Street to 61st Street. Emergency crews are on the scene working to repair the problem, officials said, and the water was shut off around 8 a.m.
