Here, a sinkhole opened up on Amsterdam Avenue, on the Upper West Side in New York City, after a water main broke and water started flowing out from the broken pipe. This image was snapped on Aug. 30, 2016, as pedestrians stopped to look at the city hole.
Check out these insane images of sinkholes, including some that are not scary at all, but rather have turned into swimming holes and gorgeous tourist attractions.
