You guys know about Prague, right? They raised the city by essentially strengthening the houses walls and building right on top. There's a
ridiculously complex subterranean system there, and it was used for secret meetings by the resistance when they were occupied by Germany in world war
2...the germans couldn't find them, LOL.
The subway system in New York is old, and used to be run by several companies, not the city. That's why some of the stations have old signs saying
things like "Brooklyn-Manhattan Transit Corporation".
If some private company built a tunnel in 1930, it wouldn't necessarily be secret when built. But if it was "abandoned" and "never used", it'd be
forgotten about years ago. Theres tons of "abandoned" lines in New York City. Supposedly theres 13 levels of platforms in Penn Station, for example. I
heard this one from some guy who had a friend of a friend...yeah, it's probably a lie, but it definitely goes a lot deeper than it looks. Of course,
Penn Station is 100% completely underground.
Infact, I remember reading about one particular abandoned tunnel that bums had been living in, right on the tracks, for years. I think the Long Island
Railroad bought it, and they had to go through there and kick all the bums out before they could start using it. I'm sure the bums found some other
abandoned tunnel to live in.
How many of these tunnels are really abandoned, and how many are in use? How many are in use occasionally, and look abandoned 99% of the time if you
sneak down there and look? No one would ever know except the bums who live in tunnels. And no one listens to bums. No one cares about them. And even
if they told me a crazy story, how do I know its true? Why would I think its true? Maybe urban explorers go down there and it really is abandoned,
until that one time they're sneaking down the tracks and get hit and killed by the secret train? No one would ever know. Dead men tell no tales.
So yeah, there's positively secret **** down there.
Infact, here's a secret subway station. www.fastcodesign.com...
The normal trains actually turn around at this secret station, so if you stay on the train instead of getting off at the last stop, .....you can see
it. It's cool as hell too.
