The Atlantic Avenue Tunnel

The Atlantic Avenue Tunnel

In Episode 1,  ABC Gotham’s amateur historians, Kate and Kathleen, discuss the Atlantic Avenue Tunnel.  Built in 1844, closed under suspicious circumstances in 1861, rediscovered in 1980, and then closed in 2010 AGAIN under suspicious circumstance, there’s definitely something going on here.  This star- studded story includes contributions from Walt Whitman, John Wilkes Booth, H. P. Lovecraft, Bob Diamond, AND Electus Litchfield.  (Who’s Electus Litchfield?  Tune in the find out!)
