New York tunnels
New York tunnels
When we think of New York, one of the most important cities in the world, the first image that comes to mind is its towering and impressive skyscrapers, the famous New York City skyline with its emblematic buildings. But what is hidden below the busy and bustling streets of the Big Apple? The truth is that, during almost 400 years of history, in this city in constant evolution, in addition to the 665 kilometers of subway tracks that spread under the city, there are also numerous underground spaces and a world of secret tunnels. that have survived the passage and are worth knowing.
Some of them are old subway tunnels or stations that are no longer in use, or that were designed for freight trains running through the city. Others, such as the 12th Avenue cow tunnels, were built to move loads (including cattle) to the city center without the need to interrupt traffic.
There are many tunnel systems that once played a vital role in the city but have never been in public view, so they were used to facilitate access to construction sites and building maintenance.
The Lincoln Tunnel is one of the few sub fluvial accesses below the Hudson River. It is 2.4 km long and connects the cities of New Jersey with New York. It was designed by Ole Singstad and named after Abraham Lincoln.
More than 120,000 vehicles pass through it every day, but there are creepy and abandoned places for the curious to visit.
This tunnel belonging to the Amtrak network passes under the West Side Freeway and runs approximately 2.6 miles from 72nd Street to 124th Street.
Famous for the murals New York taggers paint on its walls, the tunnel got its name because graffiti artist Chris “Freedom” Pape used the walls to create some of his most notable artwork.
Located under one of the most frequented leisure centers in the city, which has, among other activities, an Olympic-sized swimming pool. The pool has underwater lighting, filtration and heating systems, which require secret tunnels below for easy maintenance.
Many strange late-night occurrences have been documented at the McCarren Park Pool, which first opened in 1936 at McCarren Park in Brooklyn. According to legend, the ghost of a girl who drowned in the pool can be seen wandering around and crying out for help.
City Hall Subway Station
Built in 1904, the City Hall subway station was once the southern terminus of the first New York subway line. It closed in 1945 due to its proximity to the larger Brooklyn Bridge station.
The station is located under the New York City Hall, at the intersection of Center Street and Chambers Street, forming a curious closed curve.
Despite its apparent solitude, the City Hall station has a new “life” thanks to the New York graffiti artists who, respecting the elegant platforms, have taken over the shunting tunnels to turn its walls into a veritable gallery of street art.
Worth Street Station
Located between Canal Street and the Brooklyn Bridge, under the sidewalk on the west side of Foley Square, the Worth Street station closed in 1962.
This station, currently out of use, was part of the first subway network in New York. Although it is not one of the most popular abandoned stations, urban explorers enjoy visiting it, but seeing the old tiles and mosaics covered in graffiti.
The tunnels of Grand Central Terminal
Grand Terminal Station hide numerous disused tunnels connected to the terminal.
Some of these underground tunnels were built in the early 1900s as part of a project, called Terminal City, that connected the station to nearby hotels, such as the Waldorf Astoria and its famous abandoned Track 61 tunnel.
This tunnel allowed guests to be directed directly to the hotel in private train cars, which would take them to enter the building. Among some of the famous people who used this entrance, to go unnoticed, are General John J. Pershing, who, in 1938, was the first to use this private access. Also, President Franklin D. Roosevelt, was the one who used the entrance to help hide his paralysis from the public.
Another outstanding character was Andy Warhol himself, who took the platform in 1965 to celebrate a “clandestine party”.
