New York, NY - Atlantic Avenue Tunnel

The Atlantic Avenue Tunnel, as it is now called, was built in seven months in 1844 by the Long Island Rail Road [Map] to relieve congestion in downtown Brooklyn. In time, it became sort of an urban legend, and many stories were born about it and what uses some people may be putting it to. There were also various attempts to find it throughout the years. In the early '80s, Bob Diamond heard about it, and became captivated. [Images from Bob Diamond] He made it his mission to locate it, and through several years of research and physical work, he entered the tunnel. Occasional tours of the tunnel are given by Diamond.
