Breaking news from the tipline: "The Waldorf Astoria has a huge leak in the lobby ceiling. I don't have a camera with me, but there is literally a waterfall from the ceiling in the front lobby." A Curbed correspondent is en route to the scene; email the tipline with more details or sweet, sweet pix. UPDATE 12:08PM: Our correspondent files from the flooded lobby: "The waterfall—the result of a broken water pipe—has stopped, and workers are already ascending to the ceiling to repair the damage. Everyone in the lobby is acting as if nothing has happened, and that there isn't a giant stain on the rug. Proof that no one is immune to the ugly ravages of a pipe burst." [CurbedWire]
