General commenter consensus about yesterday's "Do Not Drill" graffiti suddenly plaguing the Upper East Side points to, surprise, the Second Avenue Subway. Noted one commenter, "I've noticed modified pick-up trucks, with drilling equipment attached to their beds drilling holes along second avenue. A couple of weeks ago, one was at 77th and 2nd, on the north-east corner."
Goodness, you'd almost think the Second Avenue Subway was actually going to get built one of these years. Which makes the Daily News report today that construction on the Second Avenue line is just "months away" from starting that much more unsettling. Seriously freaky, actually. Bizarre.
