A giant sinkhole has opened up in Brooklyn

brookyln sinkhole


Police have blocked off the intersection of Fifth Avenue and 64th Street in Brooklyn's Sunset Park as a massive sinkhole has opened up, taking most of the street corner with it.

MyFoxNY is reporting that there are no reported injuries from the streets collapse.

Authorities are not yet sure if there is any disruption to water or gas services, but the footage of the sinkhole shows at least one disconnected pipe.

Pictures posted on twitter show a large hole that could have easily swallowed up a car. The cave in is limited to the street, and the sidewalk remains in tact.

It isn't yet clear what caused the sinkhole or if there was any negligence in maintaining the road that lead to the collapse.

Heres the intersection on a normal day:
