National Grid better get on that
A huge hole in Ozone Park, Queens has sat uncovered for over a month after a gas main was replaced by National Grid, leaving the neighborhood on edge.
“Biggest concern is really the safety of them having this opened up. We have a school down the block, kids are constantly on this route, and you know kids are curious, so they're constantly looking in,” says resident Hardat Singh.
“I've seen kids actually jumping across, like daring each other,” says resident Zoey del Rio.
Anyone could easily fall into the hole, which is why residents say National Grid should cover it with metal plates at the very least.
