A hydraulic hammer
The tool of choice, for the moment.

Another hydraulic hammer - the "Rockblaster."

These bags are normally used to remove dirt and debris in a trench or hole. They are filled by hand and then lifted out of the trench with a backhoe or excavator.

A water cooler sitting on top of an old man hole. Note the jackhammer on the right.

If I'm not mistaken, this was once the base of an traffic signal pole.

A fire hydrant that is obviously no longer in service.

on 91st street - just west of 2nd Avenue
This hole was opened in the last few days.

Trench work continues.

All of these pipes, wires and cables must be relocated to make room for the launch box.

A nice example of the heavy planking that is used to support the walls of a trench as it is dug deeper and deeper.

94th at the SW corner - looking South
Three images have been stitched together
into a single image here.
At the top of the image the view is looking
down 2nd Avenue -- and at the bottom
the viewer is looking straight down into the trench.
