“Daylighting” urban rivers

FROM THE New York Times science blog Dot Earth comes this Yonkers Historical Society 1920s photograph of a giant flume being run where the Saw Mill River used to flow. Now, according to a story by Andrew C. Revkin,  Yonkers is trying to unbury the river to create a greenway.
