A few months ago we showed you “13 Unreal Photos” of what boring a New York City subway tunnel looks like.

Well, it’s officially time for a photo update on the MTA’s work that is going on deep below the skyscrapers of the bustling city.

These latest photos of the East Side Access “megaproject” that will connect the Long Island Rail Road to a new concourse under Grand Central Terminal were taken this month.

The MTA also reached its “final mile marker” for the “legendary project” that is the Second Avenue Subway this month, according to President of MTA Capital Construction Michael Horodniceanu. The milestone was awarding a $208 million contract, the last of phase 1 for the $4.45 billion project expected to be complete December 2016.

Now the terrorists do not have to steal a plane and ram it into a building to bring it down, they just have to put bombs in the subway tunnels and bring the buildings down and sinking them into the subway holes!

Another "Big Dig" sucking money down the hole.

$4.45 Billion.

Are the subway users going to pay that money back?

Spending OPM. Other People's Money.

At least this is money for infrastructure rather than wasting $1.5 Billion on eco terrorist solar flops.

They can do what ever they want to their subways, nothing would be worth living in a cement jungle with crazy ,mean, hateful , selfish people like they have in the city. Finding a kind , honest , person with compassion their is kinda rare. It all about the love of money there not my kinda place .
