A freak accident, yes. However, there's gonna be a problem in Manhattan eventually with an older and crumbling infrastructure system. It definitely needs to be addressed at some point.

I wonder how much it would cost to replace the entire network of underground utilities infrastructure in NY? I'm guessing it wouldn't be chump change. :lol:

Actually according to ConEd there aren't that many steam customers left in the City anymore. Steam was gaining interest as a clean, renewable energy source, but as we've seen, it's difficult to control, especially when the pipes are cast iron. This isn't a case of "crumbling" infrastructure. It's incompatible infrastructure.
