Strolling through scenic Brooklyn Heights, this handsome brick house might catch your eye. Perhaps you'll buy it, move in, and spend the rest of your life there. Unfortunately, it's a fake house, hiding a secret NYC Subway exit. The Brooklyn Eagle reports that the mass transit ghost house, filled old electrical panels and little else, ties in directly to the city's underbelly: "Located in the tunnel just east of the river, the exit disguised as a brownstone leads to a grimy-lit set of metal stairs that ascend past utility boxes and ventilation shafts into a windowless room with a door. If you opened the door, you would find yourself on a stoop, which is just part of the façade."
I read an article not too long ago about an artist collective that set up a HUGE display in one of the abandoned corridors down there. Its location is really only known to the artists. Really interesting stuff.
I would think that was the intent. Less to keep it secret but hide the eyesore. I remember watching a King of the Hill episode where they built a fake house around a transfer station. Always wondered if that actually happens.
