Help me learn what is underneath Manhattan!

I would like to find either a book / documentary / article or even a poster that shows a cross section of Manhattan and all the various layers of 'stuff' that most New Yorkers never think about, let alone see.

Manhattan is an amazing island, built on a network of subway systems, pipes, tunnels and who knows what else, hundreds of feet deep.
I remember reading an article a while ago that stated that the island is some 200+ feet deep and I figure that the hive mind may be able to help me find out more info!
(General FYI… this is my first post, so if I'm doing something wrong, please let me know!)
