Street Gas Pipe Repair Crew
I live on 12th Street and Seventh Avenue. Four blocks west, on Waverly Place and Seventh Avenue, street repair crews were replacing gas pipes. Excavating tractors would start at 8 pm, lifting and moving steel road covering plates. It was like living in a war zone, as jackhammers were digging up, and power saws cutting into, the street. Finally, the asphalt was paved and it only took a year! Waverly Place is quiet again. My photographs provide a look at the men who did this long, hard and dirty work. Below, they capture the digging, installing, testing, and repairing of gas pipes.
