NYC subway cars to sleep with the fishes
Decommissioned New York City subway cars are slated to become artificial reefs:
NEW YORK - After years of rolling beneath the city, 1,600 subway cars are destined for a new life lolling undersea.
The Metropolitan Transportation Authority board has agreed to convert the retired cars into artificial reefs. They'll be dispatched to the ocean floor off New Jersey, Delaware and other coastal states, starting this fall. [AP]
Good news for sea life and divers alike.
