Question For New Yorkers


Recommended Posts

I've seen these on my trips to NYC and have always been curious about them but have never asked anyone what they are or why they're there---

OK, so what exactly are these striped pipes with the sawhorses beside them in the middle of the street spewing steam?

I'm not from NYC. But I believe NYC has a municipal heating system, and these vents are part of the system?

Municipal heating system...and the steam from gas/heating pipes. It only happens during the cold season. You don't see it in the summer.
