A gas leak on the West Side forced people out of their businesses and shut down part of a busy avenue Thursday evening.Con Edison said the low pressure gas leak was coming from a telephone manhole cover on the north west side of 50th Street and 10th Avenue.

About 20 people were told to get out of their office, located just a block away.

Crews temporarily shut down 10th Avenue between 49th and 52nd streets. They have since reopened.
