Binghamton Restaurant To Reopen After Water Damage

Bob Joseph/WNBF News




A downtown Binghamton restaurant that was shut down after a sprinkler system pipe froze and then burst is reopening.

The Loft At Ninety-Nine bar and restaurant was closed due to damage sustained following the water line incident.

Signs at the business at 99 Court Street indicate clean-up work is underway and the establishment will reopen as soon as possible.

A Binghamton fire department official said he believed the problem in the building developed after a pipe in an upstairs apartment broke.

The owner of the building cold not be reached for comment.

Another downtown restaurant sustained major damage three years ago after a frozen sprinkler pipe burst.

The Lost Dog Cafe on Henry Street was closed for almost two months following the January 2010 building flood.

More recently, buildings on State Street were damaged when a frozen water line ruptured.

Several inches of water covered the floor of the former Rathskeller bar in that incident.

City officials have issued reminders to property owners to be sure to keep buildings adequately heated to prevent water damage during the winter.
