Blasting Under The East Side

After WCA member Tom Healy sent me his diving posts he also sent me another really cool video. Tom works for the MTA in New York City as a dispatcher so he keeps up with all their different projects around the city. As you all probably know the MTA has been building another subway line under the east side of Manhattan. They have been working on it for a long time and occasionally have to blast some rock. The video Tom sent shows that happening. According to the blurb on the YouTube page with this video this was a blast under Grand Central Station and is one of the last they have to do. I thought it was very interesting to be able to watch this amazing project near it's completion. Maybe you will enjoy it too.
