A huge water main break flooded several streets around Lincoln Center at about 5am on Monday morning. The flooded area spanned from about 61st to 65th Streets, and the 1, 2 and 3 trains have been suspended between 96th Street and Times Square.

Several bus routes have also been interrupted.

Here’s an update from about 9:15am:
