Tompkins Square Park sinkhole awaiting new pipe

On Saturday, workers began digging out the 4-week-old sinkhole at the Eighth Street/Avenue B entrance to Tompkins Square Park.

A worker said that he was making way for the plumbers to fix the vitrified clay pipe (guessing!) installed during the Cleveland administration that broke.

Unfortunately, the plumber apparently couldn't make it today. The hole remains uncovered, awaiting new pipe...

The good news is the trashcan that the sinkhole swallowed has been safely retrieved.
