20,000 Leagues Under NYC Print

20,000 Leagues Under NYC Print

Jules Verne wrote in Twenty-thousand Leagues Under the Seas: "At times, it is permissible to oppose human law, but to fight against the laws of nature is impossible."

PJ O'Rourke's
20,000 Leagues Under NYC is a fusion of classic literature and modern urban imagination. This stunning design (this is the “2nd final draft” in much more illustrative detail than the initial release) envisions the L train submarine under the East River of New York City. 

This energy-efficient marvel of a subway submarine was taking its regular multi- daily journey into Manhattan from Brooklyn when a colossal squid attacked and dismantled the hull of the ship. The train conductor just so happened to be in the secondary compartment towards the front of the vessel at the time. Thinking quickly, he announced the attack and dropped floaties and oxygen tanks from the ceiling of the sub with the push of a button. The survivors (thus far) frantically grabbed their supplies as total destruction of the vessel unfolded. There were only 12 survivors who were able to float away with their tanks in operation while avoiding the inexorable behemoth’s menacing tentacles. The MTA (Marine Transit Authority) conductor went down a hero in an honorable blaze of glory.
