|National Geographic Expeditions Grant
In the fall of 2010, S. Harris Ltd. was selected as a National Geographic Expeditions Council Grant recipient for the investigation and exploration of the Atlantic Avenue Tunnel in Brooklyn, New York. The tunnel is rumored to house an historic locomotive that was built in the 1840s and buried there in 1861, when the tunnel was closed to the public and sealed. This project is an ongoing exploration, and to date, S. Harris Ltd. has acted as Project Manager and Structural Engineer for the investigative work. This project will be shared with a global audience as a documentary film upon completion of the project.
“The Expeditions Council consists of representatives from National Geographic editorial divisions (magazines, television, books, and so on) who review and vote on grant applications and an advisory board of external consultants.
The Expeditions Council is editorially driven; projects must have the potential to yield compelling stories and images. Applications are also judged on the qualifications of applicants and their teams and on the merit and uniqueness of the project.
In addition to financial support, the Expeditions Council offers its grantees the opportunity to work effectively with the National Geographic's many divisions. Grantees are therefore able to share the results of their expeditions with National Geographic's global audience.”
