Über 2580 alte U-Bahnwagons wurden von US-Städten im Ozean entsorgt um als Basis für ein Korallenriff zu dienen?

Stunning Photos Showing NYC Subway Cars Being Dumped Into the Ocean

It’s not every day you see a series of photos clearly documenting someone with a front end loader pushing industrial waste directly into the ocean without any care of secrecy or stealth. Photographer Stephen Mallon captured this series of pictures over three years to document the unusual methods that New York City uses to dispose of its subway cars, but before you jump to conclusions, be sure to scroll all the way to the bottom, because this dumping has a secret purpose!

New York City has developed a special way to get rid of broken-down subway cars…

Custom barges are loaded high with subway cars and carried out to the cold icy depths in the middle of the ocean.

They use construction equipment to push the subway cars over the edge, splashing into the waters…

The cars go over the edge one by one…

It may seem like a wasteful act of reckless pollution, but there is a deeper purpose behind this odd method of disposal…

Each subway car will be left on the ocean floor, to be assimilated into the ecosystem.

Over time, every surface will be covered in life, creating an artificial coral reef system.

Every metal pipe, edge, ridge, and corner provides surface area for coral ecosystem.

Here’s what it looks like after 5 years…

… and here’s what it looks like after 10 years.

The process of creating artificial reefs has been a great help to restoring areas damaged by human activity. Engineers have even sunk an entire aircraft carrier to turn it into a reef ecosystem. In an ideal world, we wouldn’t have damaged the ocean floor in the first place, but steps like this can help to repair the destruction.

At first, Stephen Mallon‘s photos tend to lead viewers to jump to the conclusion that this is a terrible act of pollution, but the truth is something much more beautiful. This tension and discomfort is what makes his work so powerful.

Old subway cars used to go to scrap metal but, since 2001, as many as 2,580 retired subway cars have gone to the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean.

This is part of an effort to build an artificial reef off the East Coast to create habitats for marine life and recreational fishing. The MTA steam cleans the subway cars and strips them down of components that float and decompose before dumping them in the ocean. 

Photographer Stephen Mallon spent a couple of years after the start of the artificial reef program documenting the disposal of old subway cars. He has granted us permission to publish his stunning gallery here, also courtesy of Works Artists and The Front Room.
