Of the MTA's Capital Construction programs—the big, long-term undertakings like the Second Avenue subway or the 7 line extension—the one we seem to hear about the least is the East Side Access project. The idea is to expand Long Island Rail Road service to the East Side, with a new terminal underneath Grand Central and new tracks. Though the project won't be completed until 2019, construction is well under way—and now you can see the process in "The Next Level: Photographs by Hiroyuki Suzuki," a new exhibit opening today at the New York Transit Museum's Gallery Annex. Check out a couple images from the exhibit above—it'll be on view until October 27.
