When it comes to gaping holes in pavement,
it's tough to beat Philly for diversity. There's your standard top-down
pounded-out potholes; stupendous sinkholes from sudden subsidence;
and then these oft-abandoned intentional apertures cut into asphalt for utility access.
Whatever their provenance, these catch-alls inadvertently help keep the streets a little more
tidy as they become receptacles for blowing litter and deliberately deposited trash. Watch your step!
