Sandhogs

The History Channel has launched a new documentary series called Sandhogs, which premiered last Sunday. As the first episode rightly pointed out, New York is literally built on the foundation laid by these workers: our power and telecommunications grid, subway system, water tunnels, and bridges are all thanks to their hard work.

We're not sure how well this series will sustain its narrative arc after the first episode, but it's worth checking out nonetheless. They are re-showing the first episode a couple of times tonight, or you can just pick it up on Sunday with the second episode.

(The Croton Aqueduct system, a major component of the show, is one of the many topics in Inside the Apple.)
