Subway service has been restored following a water main break in Greenwich Village Wednesday night.

NEW YORK (KABC) -- Water has been restored to a Greenwich Village neighborhood in New York City after a water-main break that flooded the area and nearby subway lines.

There were no reports of injuries.

The New York City Fire Department has requested DEP emergency crews and Con Ed Gas to the scene.
