Earlier today, this river was a New York City streetS

Here's something you don't see every day — Central Park West near 107th St. in Manhattan temporarily turned into a river. The culprit? A break this morning in a massive 30-inch, 100-year-old water main.

In addition to the above-ground streets being turned into a scene from "A River Runs Through It," service on the A/B/C/D subway lines got hosed as well as we're told "the 110th St. B/C station was hit with an 8-foot wave of water that swept downhill into the station."

Check out the video below and the amazing photos the disastrous and destructive force massive amounts of water can have on pavement over at DNAInfo.
