    Thursday Feb 4 | New York Magazine

    First off, the facts as they are known: The Canarsie Tube, the tunnel that carries the L train under the East River from Brooklyn to Manhattan and back, is a mess. Hurricane Sandy more or less filled up the portion of the tunnel under the river, plus a bit on either side, significantly damaging about three miles' worth of concrete, cables, signals, and rails, plus a pump room near Avenue D. And no, Sandy did not single out the hipsters: Nine such underwater tunnels were damaged during the hurricane, in varying degrees, and three are either under repairs or fixed already.

And underneath it all lies a very fragile piece of infrastructure: The Canarsie Tube, the tunnel that carries the L under the East River, was badly damaged during Hurricane Sandy and still hasn't been properly fixed.
