Cable Fire Delays Subway Service near Manhattan Bridge Last Night
This photograph, taken by DOCJAYVA, is facing south on Flatbush Avenue Extension near Tillary Street. The Manhattan Bridge is to the photographer's back. Burning cables in a manhole just north of the Dekalb Avenue Station (the first station in Brooklyn south of the Manhattan Bridge) knocked out and disrupted subway service between Manhattan and Brooklyn last night. The fire started about 4 pm and took more than two hours to control. Thousands of passengers were delayed. The photographer had to walk across the Manhattan Bridge which is to his back of the photograph.
