Bronx Residents Say They Are Forced to Live on 'Sinkhole Ave.'
NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- That sinking feeling that folks living on Seymour Avenue in the Pelham Gardens section of the Bronx are feeling is not in their heads; their street is literally sinking.
"Seven years we've been living on Sinkhole Avenue...they (the city) don't care about us," Ray Ungar a Pelham Gardens resident tells 1010 WINS newsman John Montone.
The sinkholes can be found all along Seymour Avenue between Waring and Mace Avenues.
"Watch your step this is where the street is sinking," Ray's wife Sondra Ungar said.
Neighbors say that the city patches up the street but never finishes the job and depending on the "type" of hole they have to call different city departments to come deal with it.
The Department of Environmental Protection tells 1010 WINS that they have conducted an engineering study and will be working on the street in the upcoming months.
