Brooklyn Heights Is a Warren of Secret, Underground Tunnels

Who knew?

Under Brooklyn Heights lies a network of secret tunnels connected to the subway system. And, according to the Brooklyn Eagle, they are the center of an underground counter-terrorism effort.

Add these to the network of underground tunnels connecting Jehovah Witness buildings in the neighborhood, along with the secret Underground Railroad tunnels running from churches and residences to the river, and you got yourself a veritable warren of secret, underground tunnels under Brooklyn Heights.

It's a wonder that the various denizens of the deep aren't continuously running into each other down there. Or maybe they are.
