Fixing The Nation’s Water Pipes – Robots to the rescue!

leave a comment »

Interesting article citing some of the wooden water pipes sometimes seen in Lower Manhattan. The “sandhog” (24 have perished) water tunnel in construction through solid rock has to come up either at One Police Plaza in what was to be “Cabrini Park” or at the block in the South Street Seaport Historic District, a parking lot, “250 Water Street”. I had researched and wrote the background of the archaeology evaluation of Seaport lots a number of years ago. It is owned by the developers, the Milsteins, who also had developed property on Times Square, investments from their father’s floor business, once based in the Bronx. I have a piece of that rock, through the newspaper “Newsday” my mother Adelaide gave me. Fixing The Nation’s Water Pipes – Forbes.com
