Construction Pic: Pile Driving in The City (Part 2)

Pile Driving

(Drilling into Manhattan bedrock on Manhattan’s East Side, NYU Medical Center)

This post is dedicated to all of the die-hard construction workers who are building our City every day. Extreme weather, freezing cold and unrelenting heat waves do not deter them from creating the poetry of Construction. Pictured here are massive 80 foot piles being driven vertically down into Manhattan’s bedrock, in order to create a stable foundation for the buildings of our future City. Beauty in the everyday process of Urban change.
