I did have a fiber break in the street Manhatten due to a "steam leak".
Took out 48 strands.
Steam, rats, tunnel fires, steam system explosions, and water main
breaks take out lots of fiber in NYC -- probably more that backhoe
fade takes out elsewhere. However, backhoe fade itself (though not
unheard of) is much rarer, largely because the conduits are deep and
the streets are so jam packed that if you make a mistake about where
you are it will be obvious Very Very Quickly.
