Subway splash!








In 2000, the NYC Transit authority joined forces with an artificial reef building program, dropping stripped and decontaminated subway cars off barges into the Atlantic Ocean.  Photographer Stephen Mallon chronicled the grand endeavor with a series of beautiful and haunting photographs as these iconic New York City symbols made their way to their last stop: the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean.

Huh. That is interesting, I wonder why they wouldn't try to reuse it instead. I love the photos!
