A brief taut with mystery and suspense, in the paper of March 11, 1953: Gloria Teich, of Riverside Drive, seemed to think her vehicle was sinking as she tried to unlock it for an afternoon drive. “Astonished by the strange occurrence, she stood for a moment, staring. Sure enough, it was sinking slowly into the earth. By the time Mrs. Teich collected her wits sufficiently to attempt to drive the car away, it was too late.” The culprit was determined to be a water main leak, and the car was towed out of the hole by 4 p.m. Photo: George Alexanderson/The New York Times
