God only knows how long the clean-up from Sandy is going to take but the MTA is already putting the Unwatering Crew to work in the city’s flooded subway tunnels.
According to their Flickr site, the team is making progress:
New York City Transit employees are pumping water out of two tunnels that carry the subway beneath the East River. The Cranberry Street Tunnel, carries the A and C trains between Brooklyn and Manhattan, and the 53rd Street Tunnel carries the E and M trains between Queens and Manhattan.
Hit the flip for more shots of the flooded tunnels and the hardworking men who are down there pumping the waters out…
