HUHC Trip: East Side Access Tunnel Tour

HUHC is offering a unique opportunity to experience firsthand a monumental engineering project known as the “East Side Access Tunnel.”  Join HUHC Dean Warren Frisina and Geology Professor Bret Bennington on this private tour of the unfinished tunnel beneath the East River connecting Grand Central Station to the Long Island Railroad.

• Travel 15 stories below ground. 

• Catch a preview of the new terminals that are under construction. 

• Check out the rock formations beneath Manhattan in unfinished tunnel walls. 

•See one of the greatest mega-construction projects in the world.

There are only a limited number of spaces available for this trip.  They are being offered first to HUHC students.  If you want to attend you must request a space before Friday March 8 at midnight.  After that, spaces will be offered to the rest of the Hofstra student body.


This trip will be of special interest to engineers, geologists and urban/suburban planners.  But really, anyone who loves the city will be excited for this insider’s glimpse at the project that promises to transform the relationship between Manhattan’s East Side and Long Island.
