They are finally building another subway line for the East Side of Manhattan. Currently there is only one line, 4,5,6, so its overloaded most of the time. There used to be elevated lines down the avenues but they were torn down in the 40s.

IT’s amazing this project is moving on schedule.

even more amazing is that for the first time in 40 YEARS, upon completion of this expansion (T line), the Sand Hogs are looking at a period of time without steady work.

Very cool pictures. Every time I walk in Manhattan I wonder how much stuff ( subway tunnels, electrical lines, sewer, water lines, etc.) must be underground.

I wish I had grown up when American cities were as vibrant as those of today’s Far East. All I’ve seen in my lifetime is stagnation or slow, steady decay.

Remarkably, these elites have no problem with explosions to get them from sale to sale but really have a problem with fracking to help the nation.

When crews prepared to drill the giant new cavity under Second Avenue, they first had to freeze the ground to about minus 20 degrees so as not to destabilize the buildings above as the boring machine cut through. For that, aluminum tubes were inserted from the street and a special chemical solution was poured into the ground and cooled by a refrigeration plant.

Interesting...
