The Brooklyn Battery Tunnel

The Brooklyn Battery Tunnel, officially known as the Hugh L. Carey Tunnel, is a toll road in Manhattan. It runs under the East River and connects the Brooklyn borough to the Manhattan borough. In The Last Olympian during the Battle of Manhattan, the Demeter cabin was sent to guard the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel. The Demeter campers grew thorns and poison ivy to keep the monsters at bay.

Queens-Midtown Tunnel

The Queens-Midtown Tunnel (sometimes simply known as the Midtown Tunnel) is a highway tunnel and toll road. It crosses under the East River and connects the Borough of Queens (at the Long Island City terminus of I-495) on Long Island with the borough of Manhattan.

In The Last Olympian, during the Battle of Manhattan, the Aphrodite cabin were sent to guard this tunnel. The perfume Givenchy (which apparently monsters hate the smell of) may have been sprayed in this tunnel to keep the Titan Army away.

When the Apollo cabin (with the help of Percy Jackson and Annabeth Chase) drove back the Titan army, Kronos engaged Percy in a duel. During this duel, Kronos sent a wave of energy that almost destroyed the bridge. Percy summoned his power to destroy the bridge completely, stopping Kronos from proceeding to Manhattan. However, Michael Yew disappeared and was later revealed to have died.

The Holland Tunnel

The Holland Tunnel is a highway tunnel under the Hudson River connecting the island of Manhattan in New York City with Jersey City.
