Where the sidewalk ends…

The sidewalk is ripped up in front of the building where I work, the Plymouth Building, in downtown Minneapolis. I’m not sure what work is being done, but a bunch of brickwork has been exposed; I could see it from the skyway overlooking 6th St. It looks like regular brick walls, just under the ground, almost like the building was started at a lower level and then the current building was built on top of it. I’ve heard there are tunnels, really cool tunnels underneath Minneapolis, but have never gone exploring in them. I think a movie is coming out next year, made locally, all about subterranean urban exploration.

Anyone have urban tunnel stories to share?

    Not a tunnel story, but I have seen the underbelly of the city. Well…St.Paul really. I was walking through some REALLY old sections underground. It was really weird. I got freaked out many a time. It really felt like there was SOMETHING present.

    I want to see that movie!!
