the Atlantic Avenue Tunnel

A few weeks ago Matt and I took a tour of the tunnel beneath Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn. The tunnel was rediscovered by Bob Diamond in 1979 after it had long been forgotten and became part of the folklore of Brooklyn. The were many stories about the tunnel being a place for pirates hiding their loot, and German spies planning to sabotage munition ships during WWI. If you want to see and hear about a part of New York that is rarely known we can't stress signing up for this tour enough. More information can be found on their website. Reservations are required. Upcoming tours can be found here.
