Inside the $4.5 Billion Dig 11 Stories Under NYC

Feb. 14 (Bloomberg) -- 85 years from conception to construction, New York City's Second Avenue subway is finally being built.

Bloomberg's Rachel Crane descended 11 stories underground to see where explosives, tunnel boring machines, hoisters and 1,000 workers a day are carving out the city's first new subway line in more than 50 years.
