Water Valve Problem Sends Geyser Shooting From Second Avenue

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- A massive geyser erupted on the Upper East Side Thursday due to a problem with a valve.

As CBS2's Matt Kozar reported, water shot into the area for several minutes on Second Avenue at 84th Street, in the Second Avenue Subway construction area.

Investigators said a fitting on a replacement main failed.

The water in the area was shut off so crews could make the necessary repairs.
