A familiar sight across Our City, the massive machines which drill into Manhattan bedrock and lay the foundations for skyscrapers to come; One of the more poetic (but very loud) phases of the construction project, the drilling of piles sometimes unearths layers of Urban history deep beneath the surface.
Our Construction pic of the day recognizes the intensity and backbreaking Labor of building in New York, one structure at a time, and is a hats off to the countless souls who risk their lives on a daily basis to build The Greatest City. Skyscrapers in The Sky.
