Second Avenue Subway construction, September 2009

Construction on the Second Avenue subway (to be known as the T) is plugging along—the first section is still on track to open by 2016—but transit nerds have been following the progress via the MTA's Flickr page, which regularly updates with new photos of the unfinished line.


MTA photographer Patrick Cashin has been documenting the process since 2009, and today, Flickr released a video of the shutterbug talking about what it's like to work on such a massive project. ("You're down there for all of ten seconds and you know this is a very dangerous place to be," he explains.)


Check out the video below, and a few photos showing the construction process at various points above.
