Next Stop: Atlantic

Stephen Mallon’s Next Stop Atlantic captures subway cars being dumped into the ocean to rebuild reefs.

After being pushed and stacked like a sardine in these subways cars over the past decade, it is nice to see the sardine actually getting one of these as its new steel condo. These unbelievable photographs were captured over the past three years from Delaware to South Carolina. Since the 1600’s man has artificially created reefs. The Metropolitan Transit Authority’s recycling program has been involved for the past decade, retiring over 2500 subways cars to the ocean to help rebuild underwater reefs along the eastern seabed.
