Bed-Stuy ends 2011 with water main break

BEDFORD-STUYVESANT - Residents in Bed-Stuy are ending the year without water, thanks to a water main break this morning that left homes and businesses without water.

Neighbors say this is the second time in a week the water main has broken on Chauncey Street, between Saratoga Avenue and Boyland Street. Residents say they are frustrated that they have to go through this again, and that they hope it gets fixed soon.

DEP crews are on the scene, repairing the main and notifying people they will be without water until repairs are finished.
