Misfortune strikes again at the junction of Ludlow and Delancey.  This time it’s on the northeast corner and involves a busted water pipe.  Right now, all of 100 Delancey is dark.  Lights off.  Hanging in the window of the Duane Reade is a sign which simply reads “closed for emergency.”  That emergency occurred on the sixth floor of the under-construction residential space up above, where a water pipe reportedly burst, gushing water into both the Duane Reade and Ludlow Fitness.

An employee at the gym informed us that they would be closed for at least 24 hours to mop up the mess.  He said that their whole stock of towels and personnel was being utilized in an effort to curb damage.  Meanwhile, icicles recently formed on the marquee of Duane Reade, and the sidewalk is sprinkled with salt and sand.
