Cold War bunker found in Brooklyn Bridge

New York workers have discovered a trove of Cold War-era supplies within the masonry of the Brooklyn Bridge, a cache meant to aid in survival efforts in the event of nuclear attack.

City Department of Transportation employees were conducting maintenance on the structure Wednesday when they found the cache on the top floor of a three-floor space inside the bridge's base, agency spokeswoman Kay Sarlin said.

Some containers were marked with two dates notorious in the annals of the Cold War: 1957, when the Soviet Union launched the first satellite into space, and 1962, the year of the Cuban missile crisis when the two superpowers may have come closest to war.

Cool, huh?

Now, here's what I find most interesting:




Sarlin said one of the containers was marked, "To be opened after attack by the enemy."



What does that mean?


Makes you think there must have been some really nasty stuff packaged in there... I wonder what...

Intersting, makes me wonder how mnay more of these caches are spread around the country. Good idea to store them in a building that would be easily gotten to and not forgotten about.

Weird they've never been found before though!

Great story
