Photo Of The Day - Subway Cavern

Somehow I was not invited to last night's press tour of the subway construction that has rattled my apartment with twice-daily explosions for the last year or so. Gothamist reports:
The focus of work is now completing the massive new stations at 72nd Street, 86th Street, and 96th Street. Blasting is about 75% complete at the 72nd Street cavern, which we visited last night on a press tour. The MTA expects the blasting to be complete by the end of June. Then more blasting will begin on the 86th Street cavern around the end of this month. If the state and local governments can come up with another $950MM, and everything goes right with the current construction plan, subway service will commence in December 2016.
