After the ever informative Paula Katinas wrote a piece in Bay Ridge Life documenting residents’ worries over two sinkholes that have opened up in as many months – including concerns that City Councilman Vincent Gentile expressed regarding the life span of our 100 + year old infrastructure, DEP officials are all like “pffffff… dude, you worry too much.”
So with a gaping hole being repaired on 79th Street, and another on 92nd Street that last we checked was still being worked on, officials are taking a page out of Stevie Wonder’s song book by asking residents not to worry ’bout a thing.
“There is no need to worry,” DEP spokesperson Ted Timbers told Bay Ridge Life. “It’s just a coincidence.”
It is, of course, probably understandable if homeowners remain just a wee bit… uptight about the very ground beneath them giving way at any moment.
Meanwhile, Timbers says the exact cause of the 79th Street hole is still being investigated.
But don’t worry. They have Kevin Bacon on speed dial.
