On Wednesday, New York Magazine reported a sinkhole “6 feet long, 4 feet wide, and 6 feet deep” opened up on Driggs between Metropolitan Ave. and North 4th St. Luckily, no cars, cyclists, pedestrians, or intergalactic bounty hunters were sucked into the gaping pit.

Officials from the Department of Environmental Protection said a ruptured sewer line was the culprit. As of Thursday, the hole has only gotten bigger as workers open it up to fix whatever’s broken down there.

DEP officials expect the street to be closed until at least 3 P.M. on Thursday.
