Tunneling over

We're about a 1/4 mile closer to having a link between Queens and Grand Central on the LIRR. Here's a video showing the progress:

And the story:

Earth-eating machine devours Manhattan underbelly

I am 100% in favor of this project. Getting to the east side from Penn Station is a pain-in-the-ass-and-a-half!

Do you suppose that
this giant "earth eating machine"
can be detoured in the direction of City Hall ?

Undermine its foundation.....
and watch it all collapse into a sinkhole.....
while all those cockroach council members
are scrambling for the nearest exit !

What a scenario for some
big screen NYC sci-fi fantasy flick.....
in 3D surround sound Technicolor !

Oh,we know, the building is landmarked.
But the sacrifice would be worth it.

Then some enterprising young councilman
just might propose starting from scratch
and re-write our municipal landmarks law.....
strengthening it to address
its shortcomings in the outer boroughs.

Now that's some real fiction !
