Oh hi, there's a hole here


[Last Sunday]

Last Sunday, we noted the sinkhole in the works on Avenue A at East Third Street. It had already eaten a pylon, and was on its way to becoming a rare 5 Pyloner and potential film franchise for Dwayne Johnson.

Anyway, EVG reader John Iz shared these photos showing the developments here this past week... and the DOT's various attempts to warn vehicular traffic of the hole in the Avenue...

Tuesday!



Wednesday!



Thursday!



Friday! (Yesterday!)



What else might the DOT place here to warn motorists of the sinkhole?

Updated:

John shared photos from the hole from Saturday...



...with bonus shot of the can of spray paint used to mark the perimeter...

Are there renegade street artists working at DOT? This is almost absurdist or dada-ish from a layman's perspective (mine) Is Banksy back in town or is it one of his hipshit imitators or perhaps his retarded separated twin Mr. Brainwash?

Seriously though, this is just a disgrace. This type of negligence usually goes on in world's borough of Queens, or more fittingly back in the bad old days. Either this city has their hands full, doesn't give a shit, or doesn't have the funds to fix this. And I am starting to think it's the last one.

At least you can drink a beer then piss it out in public there right?

The lifeless bodies of Rafael Toledano, Ben Shaoul, Jared Kushner and the ICON turds? A fitting end that would allow them to provide one decent service to the neighborhood they have done so much to destroy.

Stick DeBlasio in it. We live in a banana republic.

I'm with Gojira except the bodies don't have to be lifeless.
