East Side Access Construction_Long Island City_Clocktower-002
Today’s Daily What?! is this view of the East Side Access construction snapped from atop the Long Island City Clocktower.  Underground, massive tunnels have been constructed that connect Sunnyside Queens to a new Long Island Railroad Terminal that will sit underneath the current Grand Central Terminal tracks.

We were at the Clocktower checking out the rooftop deck of the abandoned Bank of Manhattan building during an Untapped Cities/Local Roots NYC fundraising dinner for No Longer Empty.Check out additional photos from our behind the scenes visits into the Second Avenue Subway construction and the 7 Line extension, two of the MTA’s other Capital Programs.
