NY1 reports that the MTA is accepting RFPs from construction companies for the massive project of tunneling under Second Avenue for the Second Avenue subway. Gothamist can only hope that one of the companies submitting a bid has that special "quiet drilling" technology. Even though drilling is 50 feet underground, let's face it, you can feel the subway moving under your feet on the street (or next to you, if you're at the Angelika). For a get rich in 20 years scheme, Gothamist says you should buy on property along the proposed 2nd Avenue subway and then sell when it's finished, knowing that at any point the project could stall out.

The MTA on the Second Avenue Line project, NY magazine's cover story on the Second Avenue Subway, and Gothamist readers wonder what color and numbers/letters the new line will be.
