Thanks for the information. I am interested in the tunnel I saw just after going down in the subway around 14th. This was in the 40's & 50's. It went east. A friend of mine went into that tunnel and said he saw rats as large as cats. A long time ago but wonder what it was and is it still there.

I thought so but wasn't sure. A short time going into the subway there was a tunnel going east and could be seen through the window of the train. I always wondered what it was for.

Going north entering the subway there was a abandond tunnel going east. A friend of mine walked through it and said there were rats as big as cats down there. I could not find any facts about that tunnel but it did and could still exist. I SAW IT OUT THE WINDOW OF THE TRAIN. This was in the 50's.
