Subway Secrets

While surfing the net the other day, I discovered a fascinating fact. There is a secret subway entrance disguised as a walk-up brownstone in Brooklyn. It is unclear to me exactly why - is it to merely blend in the neighbourhood or is this service entrance meant to be truly secret for security reasons?

Regardless of the true reason behind it, I love the fact that one can be walking down a perfectly quiet suburban street and not realize what is hidden behind it. I may have to make a trip out there so see it with my own eyes.

Curbed NY article here.

That is so awesome! But crazy. Is it an exit only, or also an entrance?

Hi Viv! From what I understand, it's just a service entrance/emergency exit and so not open to the public ...
