Salem Secret Underground:The History of the Tunnels in the City by Chrisopher Jon Luke Dowgint
Good one! How does one forget about a Disco that was there only 30 years ago? Downtown Houston has modern tunnels that serve much the same purpose today, except for the illegal activity at least when I've been in them. Article mentions San Francisco, which also has a rich system of hidden tunnels underneath- with a concentration of tunnels in Chinatown.
A Muni driver the other day was going on about them for ten minutes on the ride home, fascinating stuff. Love the writing on the inside of the safe door. Stairwell to Nowhere was not nearly as popular as Stairway to Heaven. The immigrants settled in Salem around the s and early s, with the population peaking at This may be one of the coolest stories I have ever read on Fark. I sense a road trip is in order. I just uncovered a Civil-war-era abandoned narrow-gauge rail line out here complete with multiple rough tunnels, but an underground tunnel system trumps that.
Unless they find the equivalent of an underground skyscraper below the George Washington Bridge with a giant meadow at the bottom, I will fail to be impressed. The Seattle one sucks tho, compared to what it used to be. Thank all the dot-com busts for that. They did a number on it, walling off and renovating parts of the original tour into basement server farms for companies that either moved or went out of business entirely. Wasn't that the Atheist version?
I went to high school in Salem, and if you go downtown there are thick glass blocks set in some of the old sidewalks. Made sense to me, especially in light of Oregon's extremely racist past. The state was a stronghold for the KKK before that organization's collapse in the 30's? Beautiful country, though.

Calgary has something similar, but all of ours are above ground Dubya Bush used it to get from point to point and stay out of sight when he visited our city Are you Groover McToober. I've been there before. It's a long long way to nowhere And were leaving very soon On the way we pass so close So that's where the stairway goes.
I think Disco was one of things from the 70s that people wanted to forget. After the 5th details emerge. Came for the Jack Tripper references, leaving somewhat satisfied.

On another entirely different note, back in the later 90's I lived in Eugene Oregon right by the U of O campus. At one point I found a manhole cover to the steam tunnels below the campus unlocked and spent some time running around in there exploring. It was around 55 up top and around in the tunnels. Omaha has a lot of tunnels in it's downtown area inter-connecting many buisnesses and homes. Early last century they raised the entire street level for the area which created many of the tunnels for the buisnesses and old buildings. Although most of the buisnesses have closed and the tunnels fell into public disuse.
Some are still used to transfer goods between buinesses with a common owner. A lot of the homes on the outskirts are also connected to the network. Sometimes owners are not always aware. I remember hearing story of a home owner that found a bricked up entrance in their basement, opened it up and found the chained remains of a woman that had been in there for over 50 years. That's besides the massive underground military complex here.

Hell No, Ernie, we're buying ourselves a rival company and conducting synergistic layoffs marketwatch. Real funny. Why, yes, I've been living in a secret underground shelter since the 's. Also underground. To help prevent patients from escaping, tunnels were built from building to building so they could be easily wheeled from place to place. Sadly those tunnels are being filled in. Some patients never escaped, even in death. These copper cans are filled with the ashes of tens of thousands of patients who died at the hospital when no family members came to collect the bodies.

I used to walk the grounds of this place on Halloween night when there were still patients in the Forensics ward where the most dangerous people were kept. The plot would entail the beautification of this neighborhood and entice a series of merchants and ship captains to build a series of two grand brick mansions set apart at fixed distances around the new park. All attached to a series of smuggling tunnels that would lead from the wharf, to their stores, and the banks. Dig into the tunnels of Salem and find the underbelly of our nation!
