The Lost Cow Tunnels of New York City

Like every other major metropolis, New York City has tunnels for people, tunnels for cars, and lots of tunnels for trains. But it also has something rather more unique: tunnels for cows. Or does it?

Love things like this...really hope someone can find one of them and show us. Fascinating stuff. There used to be a show, think History Channel, where the host would investigate undergrounds of various cities. This would be something he'd love to find. Thanks so much.

Fascinating bits of history. There may be other cow tunnels in other major
cities in US as well.

ty, Carrie.

Really fascinating pieces of history. Sure wish they were able to prove that the cattle tunnels are still there!
Thank you for this interesting article Carrie.

New York is often filled with surprises, so few things would be all that surprising. So many things are often fond underground, coming to light in more recent times.

One has to wonder if there are tunnels these days for tea bag politicians to escape from the light of day and plot their next bizarre assaults against Obamacare?

Sorry, that should have been often found underground, not fond. I was typing while inside a tunnel. I'm on the lam trying to escape from tea baggers and their endless pontificating while wondering if there is light at the end of their tunnels... or just an coming GOP train. Run!
