Lincoln tunnel cross section: Lincoln Tunnel, a vehicular tunnel that runs under the Hudson River from Manhattan (39th Street), New York, to Weehawken in New Jersey. Designed by Ole Singstad, the tunnel was built by shield-and-compressed-air methods to hold back the outside water pressure. Each tube carries two lanes. The tunnel is made up of three vehicles tubes. It measures 1.5 miles (2 km) in length and is located 97 feet (30 meters) below the river’s surface. It was opened in 1937 and featured reversible traffic lanes. It is also the longest tube, at 8,216 feet (2 504 meters). The north tube, which was opened in 1945, is 7,482ft (2,281m) long and carries westbound traffic. The south tube, which opened in 1957, is 8,006ft (2,440m) long and carries eastbound traffic. The Port Authority of New York operates the tunnel, and it is named after Abraham Lincoln.
The city is New York went bankrupt in the 1970s. In Los Angeles, the music industry moved west. The New York City musical revival that occurred at the end of the decade was not due to the same tradition of songwriting, engineering, and session musicianship that characterized New York City’s popular music during the pre- Beatles period. It was more a result of New York City’s reputation as a city at the center of the globe and where the thrills outweighed any danger. People from all walks of the world took over New York City’s middle class, leaving behind a new generation that shaped the music and image of the city.
There was one side, the romantic, naive new wave, and the other, the pre- AIDS hedonism in disco. It was a time best represented by Saturday Night Fever (1977). The film, fittingly, was about a true mongrel. It was shot in Brooklyn’s more shabby Manhattan. The film was directed by Robert Stigwood, an Australian. He adapted a story from Nik Cohn (a Northern Irish-Lithuanian Jew). The music was recorded in Miami by Britons who grew up in Australia (the Bee Gees).
