Many of the world's foremost civil engineering wonders—bridges, tunnels, highways, subways, skyscrapers, airports, water supply systems, and wastewater treatment systems—are located in New York City and its environs. The Guide to Civil Engineering Projects In and Around New York City was designed by the ASCE Met Section's International Group to provide the public with an overview of some of the major civil engineering projects in or near NYC. The pocket-sized guide is easy to carry around and is great for tourists visiting the New York Metropolitan area that have an interest in civil engineering. Directions are provided to each of the projects included in the guide by auto and public transportation.
Published in 2009, the second edition of the Guide to Civil Engineering Projects In and Around New York City has been significantly expanded since the first edition was released in 1997. It is now packed with 140 pages of history, technical details, photos, and maps for many of New York City's engineering projects, several of which have been designated Historic Civil Engineering Landmarks by the ASCE while others are National Historic Landmarks, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, or landmarked by the City of New York. Key statistics are provided in both metric and English units.
