Subway submarine reef

Apparently, Delaware got subway cars that New York City was getting rid of and sunk those cars to the ocean floor. This provided fish with a reef-like habitat. So much so that:
The [Redbird] reef, named after New York City’s famous Redbird subway cars, now supports more than 10,000 angler trips annually, up from fewer than 300 in 1997. It has seen a 400-fold increase in the amount of marine food per square foot in the last seven years, according to state data.
On reading this article, I had to look up at the dateline. It was reassuringly April 8, not April 1.

Time then to get our trucks off the blocks and into the 1120 square miles of lakes?
