The New York Times Living City Series: Finally, a Second Avenue Subway

The Upper East Side is at last seeing progress on its new subway line. For the residents and businesses in the area affected by this vast construction project, it has been an exercise in endurance.

Have you ever wondered how New York works? Produced by Melanie Burford and Greg Moyer of Blue Chalk for The New York Times, each episode of “LIVING CITY” is a short documentary that tackles simple questions about big engineering systems using graphics, animation, interviews and knowledgeable guides.
