NYC's Subway Car Recycle Plan Taken Over By Delaware
Remember when Anthony Wiener wanted subway trains dumped into the Hudson? (Not out of pique or malice, but because that would create an environmentally healthy "artificial reef" off the shoreline, and cost the city less than it was paying to have the disused cars shipped out to Delaware and New Jersey.) Greenupgrader reports that, though New York never got around to doing it, Delaware has, taking the trains we send them (along with old bridges, army tanks, etc) and dumping them into the drink at Slaughter Beach to create reefs. No wonder we're broke -- even the puny little states are kicking our ass these days.
