Photo Wednesday 061913: East Side Access Edition

This is a tunnel carved out by a giant mechanical earthworm.

Actually it's a tunnel boring machine and it's what has been chewing through granite under and inside of Manhattan island. So weird that the machine itself ends up buried forever in the last tunnel it creates. This PhotoWednesday picture comes from the MTA's collection of tunnel project images and it's very impressive that this and more is going on under our collective feet.
