    A sinkhole swallowed up a New York City intersection early on Tuesday, collapsing two lanes of roadway during morning rush hour, fire officials said.

    No injures or damage to private property were reported as a result of the sinkhole, which was reported to officials at about 8 a.m. EDT in the borough of Brooklyn, said a spokeswoman with the New York City Fire Department.

    The spokeswoman did not say whether gas or water service to the area was disrupted.

    The exact size and depth of the crater were not immediately available.

    Aerial footage of the scene showed construction workers attempting to block off the area, which spans part of a lane and a crosswalk.

    That's pretty crazy. I know sinkholes happen in Florida a bit, but not there.

    Also, the hole looks like it has a giant penis in it.

    Actually sinkholes happen in NYC fairly regularly.

    No, not really. That is, unless you noticed the sack on the left side.

    That's what made it look so dickish, and then the visible demarcation between the "head" and the "shaft"

    I thought that too, even before the sack was pointed out.

    That's amazing that no injuries happened when it gave way during morning rush hour.

    That would scare the shit out of me.
