That Sinking Feeling on Pacific Street

We thought we'd pass along a report from the Boerum Hill Yahoo group of a depression/sink hole that's been opening up on Pacific Street between Bond and Nevins. Specifically:
It collapsed this morning and there was a two foot depression that wrecked someone's wheels. It keeps collapsing. My guess is that the vault that runs along the city sewer main has collapsed. If this is the case then it will just keep collapsing...311 calls will get DOT to come and lay some surface stuff, but unless the underlying problem (no pun intended) is fixed it will just keep happening...My advice: don't park your car anywhere near this sinkhole, as people tend to slam on the brakes and swerve when they hit it. Someone hit my car after hitting the depression last week. Any car within probably 40 or 50 feet is fair game.
Updates if the thing swallows anything up.
