Reader Betsy Cadel spotted a giant sinkhole on 97th and Riverside Drive Sunday morning. She sent us these photos, taken by her husband Andy Cadel.
Two cars fell in and were partially submerged, but Council Member Mark Levine sent out a tweet saying there were no injuries, while highlighting the need for NYC to update its infrastructure.
