Thats right, well kind of. A sinkhole opened up on the Upper West Side of New York swallowing a BMW and part of a dance studio several weeks ago. Granted the sinkhole was the result of a water main break and not necessarily natural causes like we associate with sinkholes here in Florida. In similar news a sinkhole opened up in Miami on the turnpike. This was also the result of a water main break. I have always taken a little exception to these water main breaks even being called sinkholes. Sinkholes as we know them are natural causes and not man made. Most “sinkholes” portrayed in the news are actually the result of water mains and not naturally occurring.
