From the Times Ledger:
In December, the city Department of Environmental Protection installed two new catch basins and a storm water pipe along 28th Road near the Whitestone Expressway, which the co−ops overlook. The area has been plagued by flooding because of a lack of adequate storm drains and while a sewer restructuring has been planned, funding problems have kept its implementation on the shelf.
Though the catch basins were welcomed by the 3,000 residents of the 13−apartment building community at the time, over the course of the last two weeks their opinion has soured. Several large sinkholes have opened up along the roadway, each lining the temporary asphalt that the DEP laid down after completing the sewer project late last year.
