BROOKLYN - A small sinkhole in Bed-Stuy has been causing big problems for residents. 

Crews were called to Chauncey Street Thursday morning after a hole caved in the pavement, but people in the area complain that it's been an ongoing problem for at least seven or eight years. 

Residents say that every time the sinkhole appears in the exact same spot, it's just filled in and covered up, which has proven to be a temporary fix that only lasts a couple of months. 

News 12 reached out to both the Department of Environmental Protection and the Department of Transportation, but has not yet heard back.
