Description :
Sandhogs are miners 800 feet below the streets of Manhattan, tunneling bedrock to construct the largest unified infrastructure project in New York City history—the 60 mile long City Water Tunnel #3.
Sandhogs is an original portal to the unseen characters and systems of underground New York—revealing the essential 'art form' of mining in the modernized city.
Sandhogs introduces the public to this vibrant and intricate subculture, bringing their rich, extraordinary, subterranean imagery to the surface for the first time ever.
Soon 1.5 billion gallons of water will flow through the channel daily, delivering water to the entire city—a historic and monumental feat of engineering and a testament to the power of the human spirit.
