In a show rivaling the hurricane response, the M.T.A. has cleaned up a good 10-feet of standing water in the Harlem subways yesterday after a century-old water main burst at 106th Street. The main burst around 11:30 a.m. yesterday, and subway service on the A, B, C and D lines was restored at 5:00 a.m. this morning, just in time for the morning rush. Herewith are some photos of the clean-up from M.T.A photographer Patrick Cashin.
