Authorities are racing to tackle a massive sinkhole that has opened up on a street in a New York neighbourhood.

Dramatic images showed a huge hole at the corner of Fifth Avenue and 64th Street in Sunset Park, Brooklyn.

CBS reported that video taken from a helicopter shows the sinkhole having swallowed most of the intersection.

It is unclear what caused the road to collapse or if anyone was hurt as the sinkhole developed.

This will be updated shortly
