POLL: Do You Agree with How the MTA Gets Rid of Old Subway Cars?

January 21, 2015

Yesterday, we featured the breathtaking photography of Stephen Mallon, who for three years documented decommissioned NYC subway cars being dumped into the Atlantic Ocean. What might initially seem like an act of pollution is actually an environmental effort to create artificial reef habitats for fostering sea life along the eastern seabed. Some readers, though, felt that better modes of recycling exist, such as using the cars to build affordable homes or repurposing the metal for construction purposes. Which side are you on?
