Valentine’s Day 1961

Feb. 14., 1961: Underneath 51st Street and Fifth Avenue, Lacey Wilson and Herman Humes coated a water main with concrete to prevent it from breaking or bursting. “The main, built before 1870 — the city’s records on water installations are incomplete before that date — is similar to the one on Central Park West near 102nd Street that burst and caused widespread flooding Jan. 12,” wrote Charles G. Bennett. Photo: Larry Morris/The New York Times source
