Crews are expected to work through the weekend to repair a massive sinkhole that opened up on a Brooklyn street Wednesday night.
It happened on 79th Street between 4th and 5th Avenues in Bay Ridge.
Officials with the Department of Environmental Protection say it happened after a sewer main broke 20 feet below the ground.
The main was installed in 1900.
Some cars parked on the street were perilously close to falling in.
"It was like Jenga, had anything moved the car would have been in the hole, so it was teetering," said eyewitness Maggie Flood.
"I just feel bad, I don't think this should've happened. National Grid was working all weekend with jackhammers and I feel like they started something, you know these are old pipes," said another witness.
The DEP says the issue was not caused by Wednesday's wet weather.
No injuries were reported.
