    Giant rig carves new tunnel beneath NYC's streets

    I wonder if they Find Caves while doing this.

    NEW YORK (AP) -- A huge, granite-eating machine that spent the past eight months chewing a mile-long tunnel beneath a busy Manhattan office district is getting a rest, of sorts, after completing its journey to Grand Central Terminal.

    The 200-ton, tunnel-boring rig is one of two that have been carving a pair of new rail tubes that will eventually allow commuter trains from Long Island to connect with Grand Central for the first time.
