6 Pics Of A Flooded NYC Subway Station

The water ran high. Real high.

The MTA released pictures of the Cranberry Street Tunnel, “which carries the A and C trains between Brooklyn and Manhattan underneath the East River.”

The last picture shows the that water got 28” high. Below are the pics of the team that bravely attempted to drain the station to make NYC functional again.

All images by MTA New York City Transit / Leonard Wiggins. You can follow the MTA on Flickr.

For perspective, this is what a normal subway station in NYC looks like versus the flood caused by Hurricane Sandy. (The station shown is South Ferry.)
