Our Friend The Sinkhole at 4621 North Winthrop is still open, nine months (and easily, 20 calls to 311) after we first reported it. (The residents had been calling it in for months before a reader wrote us about the situation.)
The City came out to do some sewer rodding on Winthrop last week and told us, nope, not their job, it has nothing to do with the sewers, no idea what it is or why it's still lurking.
As much as we love the addition of three (three!) construction horses and a jaunty orange cone (upside down, yet), we wonder what it's going to take to get this deep hole closed. Some suburban kid stumbling into it in the dark after a concert at the nearly Aragon? Frankly, folks, we're out of ideas.
