A Trip Into The Tunnel For The 2nd Ave Subway
Benjamim Kabak over at Second Avenue Sagas got a special tour yesterday of the launch box and tunnels for the Second Avenue Subway. He has a great series of photos up on his site showing the deep cavern, nearly 60 feet under the avenue, as well as a peek inside the tunnel (seen above).
The west tunnel is now complete from 96th to 65th street and they just started boring the east tunnel. Service on the line is still about 5 years away but this is a cool look at things to come. Yes, Virginia, there will be a Second Avenue subway....here's the tunnel to prove it.
