Pieces of Tappan Zee Bridge to live on in artificial reefs
Once the old Tappan Zee Bridge is blasted to bits Tuesday, its larger bits will live underwater.
Debris from the bridge is being added to six man-made reefs off the coast of Long Island.
Diver Elliot Bertoni has explored some of those artificial reefs. They contain things like old ships and other items.
"The fish want a habitat to survive in and it allows the smaller fish from being prey for the larger fish," says Bertoni. "It's a neat world, its a different world."
The reefs also provide a boost for the fishing and spots diving industry.
