In "Under New York," aired last month, we see the inside of the Aqueduct raw - totally natural with bats flying about and the grunge that accumulates with time. The explorers had to do confined space training and there they are, splashing through the dark and foreboding tunnel with hard hats and head lamps. One of the best parts is when they come upon a "dead air" section and they are running for air, one after the other, then scrambling up the ladder to safety. This section of the Aqueduct is not the refined and well-lit section that we have in Ossining. It's "au naturel." -- Mavis Cain
