The 2nd Avenue Subway may be making your puppy sick and may be keeping you up at night and may be creating odors and dust plumes, but it sure does look cool down there. The MTA just uploaded some new photos from the underground, which is looking pretty different from when we visited in 2010. Progress?!

The first phase of the project, out of four, is scheduled to be done sometime in 2016. And in the end, it will include a two-track line along 2nd Avenue from 125th Street to the Financial District, as well as a connection from 2nd Avenue through the 63rd Street tunnel to existing tracks for service to West Midtown and Brooklyn.

And if the Mayans were right, this looks like a pretty sweet space to hole up in when the Apocalypse comes.
