Con Ed crews, businesses working to recover after water main break

Crews from Con Edison are still working around the clock to fix the water main break that flooded parts of Jerome Avenue a week ago.

Click "NEXT" below your video player for how residents around the water main break are dealing with the cleanup.

Business owners attended a meeting today to voice their frustrations that while they have reopened, police have still blocked off a large area, keeping the customers away.

Owners wanted to know if the city will compensate them for lost income.

Officials say that the issue of liability is still up in the air over the cause of the break and who, if anyone, would be eligible for compensation.

Meanwhile, residents affected by the flooding say that it could be two months until they can return to their apartments.
