A wide hole in the center of a Morris Park street is causing concern amongst neighbors, who want it to be fixed immediately before it grows or causes someone to get hurt.
The sinkhole on Van Nest Avenue has made it difficult for the residents to navigate the one-way street. Cones are around it to warn drivers, but it doesn’t leave much room for people to avoid the gaping hole.
Residents told News 12 that it has been there for roughly two weeks near the intersection of Fowler and Van Nest avenues. One neighbor said they have called 911, 311 and the FDNY for a long-term fix.
Another smaller sinkhole can be found on the 900 block of Van Nest Avenue.
