The Empire State is well-known for its many marvels of engineering. If you’re looking for man-made wonders in New York, you’ve come to the right place. One of our many achievements is the Brooklyn-Battery Tunnel, also known as the Hugh L. Carey Tunnel. The Battery Tunnel connects Red Hook in Brooklyn with Battery Park in Manhattan and flows underneath the East River. It’s over 9,100 feet long and is the longest continuous underwater vehicular tunnel in North America.
