About This Tour:

Opening to traffic for the first time in 1937, the Lincoln Tunnel connecting New Jersey to Midtown Manhattan was hailed as the New Deal’s next great engineering triumph.  A second tube was built shortly after the Lincoln Tunnel’s first, with a third requested due to increasing traffic built in the late 50s. To this day, the three tunnels service hundreds of thousands of cars and buses coming in and out of New York City. Join Untapped New York’s Chief Experience Officer, Justin Rivers, as he drives you through the secrets and marvels of NYC’s infamous pieces of infrastructure. And you won’t even have to sit in traffic!
