How to Build A Subway by The Elephant's Child

New York City is building a new subway, and here’s an album of pictures that gives an idea of how it’s done. The Second Avenue subway line was the greatest project that the city never built — until 2007, almost 90 years after it was initially  proposed, when the city finally broke ground. When completed, the $4.5 billion project will provide New Yorkers with two more miles of commutable subway tunnels on Manhattan’s East Side. This will become the 72nd Street Station. Different working conditions, not my cup of tea, but interesting.
