Tuesday, February 16 | 12:30 Pm - 1:30 Pm - Free Online Discussion

 

A network of tunnels runs under the streets and rivers of New York City, providing transportation across the boroughs without adding to the congestion of neighborhoods up above. Tunnel construction requires tremendous manpower and engineering feats, and has changed over time. Explore how the landscape of New York City has impacted tunnel construction and learn about different methods of building, such as cut and cover, under water, and deep rock tunneling, used during early construction, and tunnel boring machines that were introduced more recently.

 

Join Educator Roberto Chavez to explore the fascinating stories of tunnels in New York City and learn about some of the people behind their

creation.
