Water main breaks on Hoe Avenue and Freeman Street in Foxhurst
A water main broke just before 4 p.m. Friday, flooding a Bronx street and leaving about 20 families without water.
It happened in Foxhurst at the corner of Hoe Avenue and Freeman Street.
The pipe, originally installed in 1961, froze and cracked, destroying the asphalt and splitting the street in half. Water sprang up from the ground, covering the street in a sheet of ice.
