Next Stop Atlantic Opens Sept 10th

Can you imagine if you were on the last drop?  You get on the train expecting to get out at Atlantic Station and end up hitting the Atlantic Ocean instead.  Seeing these massive mechanisms being tossed into the ocean like a toy in the bathtub is a  ping in my heart.   I  have always been  attached to these machines, their surreal beauty integrated into their functional engineering  At first I was stunned  the moments of violent recycling, watching the water quickly adapt to its new underwater houses.  After being  pushed and stacked like a sardine in these subways cars over the past decade, it is nice to see the sardine actually getting one of these as its new steel condo.  These unbelievable photographs were captured over the past three years from  Delaware to South Carolina.  Since the 1600's  man has artificially created  reefs.  The Metropolitan Transit Authority's  recycling program has been involved for the past decade, retiring over 2500 subways cars  to the ocean to help rebuild  underwater reefs  along the eastern seabed.  These are my images, seconds before these mass transit vessels  join history in building homes for life under the sea
