October 14, 2007

various locations on 2nd Avenue
This poster started to appear after the last Community Board 8 meeting. Right after the meeting I spotted about 2 dozen of them, but on the day that I went out to take pictures I only could find 2 - on 95th street.

95th street, NW corner - looking south
In this image you see the barrier that has been erected to try and get pedestrians to use the temporary crosswalks. My observations suggest that most people continue to walk where ever they want - as is evident in this picture!

btw. 94th and 95th, west side of the avenue
Almost all of the work at the moment is focused on digging a new trench for the sewer line that will replace the existing sewer line that (today) is in the middle of 2nd Avenue.

A self portrait, of sorts.

Old cast iron sewer lines.

btw. 92nd and 93rd, west side of the street - looking west.
This machine, an excavator with a hydraulic hammer connected to it, is being used to clear the trench for the new sewer line.

btw. 92nd and 93rd, west side of the avenue - looking north
Another view of the new trench for the sewer line. The temporary bridge, I think, is just an emergency exit from the building.

There's an enormous amount of work going on right in front of the Key Food store at this location. The wooden ramp on the left is used in the morning for deliveries to the store.
