Peer Into the Depths of the Second Avenue Subway Tunnel

Scientific American toured the Second Avenue subway tunnel site back in April and published the images in its July issue. The outtakes are online, with some background on the tunnel's status from writer Anna Kuchment:

"Wearing hard hats and boots, we climbed five stories down a rickety set of stairs and emerged inside the cavernous construction site that will eventually form the East 96th Street station. The ground is wet and muddy, and if you stand in the middle of this vast hole in the ground and look up to its entrance, you can glimpse the tops of the tenements that line Second Avenue."
