Water was flowing into the station because of the water main break shortly after 5 a.m. on 14th Street, between Sixth and Eighth avenues. After a suspension between Manhattan and Brooklyn, some service resumed at about 7:35 a.m. Regular service was restored shortly after noon when crews had repaired the damage caused by the water, the MTA said. The cause of the water main break is under investigation. By Nicole Brown firstname.lastname@example.org @ncb417 Nicole Brown is the Internet News Manager at amNY.com, covering local news since 2016.
