Andrew Haswell Green Park—Phase II

Andrew Haswell Park

Funds have been raised and are in the custody of the NYC Parks Department to build this phase of the project. However, the Parks Department's survey of the underpinnings/pilings of the section pictured here discovered the need for extensive rehabilitation before the tons of earth and plantings can be placed at the site. The projected cost is an additional $12 million.

East Side Access (ESA)

East Side Access

East Side Access is a public works project being undertaken by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) in New York City, designed to bring the Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) into a new East Side station to be built below and incorporated into Grand Central Terminal in Manhattan. It is expected to be operational by 2018.

Second Avenue Subway (SAS)

Second Avenue Subway

The Second Avenue Subway project will include a two-track line along Second Avenue from 125th Street to the Financial District in Lower Manhattan. It will also include a connection from Second Avenue through the 63rd Street tunnel to existing tracks for service to West Midtown and Brooklyn. Sixteen new ADA accessible stations will be constructed.

Under the current plan, the project will be built in four phases. Phase One will include tunnels from 105th Street and Second Avenue to 63rd Street and Third Avenue, with new stations along Second Avenue at 96th, 86th and 72nd Streets and new entrances to the existing Lexington Av/63 Street Station at 63rd Street and Third Avenue.

Shaft 33B of the 3rd Water Tunnel and 2 Ancillary Mains

Shaft 33B

The City currently relies on City Water Tunnels No. 1 and 2 for the majority of its drinking water.  These tunnels were first put into service in 1917 and 1936, respectively.  Completing City Water Tunnel No. 3 will provide New York with critical redundancy, and will allow DEP to shut down and repair City Water Tunnels No. 1 and 2 for the first time in their history.

The last Shaft, 33B, is located at 59th Street & 1st Avenue. The remaining work is to build the two mains that will hook up the mains to the shaft and the main trunk lines that run up 3rd Avenue. The 1st main is being built along 59th Street and 58th street is being explored by DDC as the location for the secondary main.
