Subway at sea

New York City straphangers sometimes feel as though they're packed in like sardines.

But some real fish will soon take up residence in 40 former New York City subway cars.

The subway cars are due to be sunk off the coast of Ocean City, Maryland, this morning, in order to form a manmade reef.

A total of 1,600 old subway cars are to be deep-sixed off of Delaware, Maryland and New Jersey.
