Gaping hole in Kingsbridge Heights poses danger to neighbors

Posted: Updated:

A gaping hole in Kingsbridge Heights has posed a threat to neighbors for months, and they're worried someone is going to get hurt.

Down below Creston Avenue is a hole filled with garbage, rocks and old cones. Residents say it's an accident waiting to happen.

Daniel Gonzalez walks his dog three times a day. He constantly has to be careful around the hole and says he's called 311 multiple times.

The hole is right across the street from St. James Park and behind a school. Residents say there's a lot of child foot traffic near where the hole is located.

Hours after News 12 crews left the intersection near the hole, neighbors spotted Department of Environment Protection crews Friday night covering the hole with a steel plate.

DEP officials say the steel plate will make it safe until a full repair can be scheduled.

Neighbors hope it gets fixed before winter.
