A few years ago I heard about an inmate who had a map of underground tunnels throughout Utica with access to some businesses. His whole conversation was about making a whole lot of money from these tunnels. He says it was an old system used by mafia scum to hide out and hide money.

Are we talking about a SEWER?

Sewer may refer to:

A system for transporting sewage:
Sanitary sewer, a system of pipes used to transport human waste

Storm drain, a collection and transportation system for storm water

Combined sewer, a system performing both the functions of a sanitary sewer and a storm sewer

Sewer, one who does sewing

There are tunnels under Utica. Many have been closed off ove the years or caved in. On tunnle went to Rosco Conklings house from downtown used in the brutal winter months long ago. There are some in houses on sunset by st. lukes that were used by the underground railroad... Utica has a ton of history....

It never gets old seeing Uticans display their ignorance by misspelling even the simplest of words. You really can't spell SEWER? No wonder there are no jobs around here, you morons aren't nearly qualified.

How f*ing stupid can you retreads be who think Underground Railroad referred literally to "underground" passage of slaves from South to North? Come on, tell me you were joking? Do you think that just maybe, when someone refers to a building as being part of the "underground railroad" it was actually just a place of refuge for fleeing slaves. You know, a place for them to stop and rest, get some food, directions to next place etc...Every small town this side of the Mason-Dixon line has old buildings that were part of the "railroad", I'm simply astonished that people somehow manage to survive the hazards of everday life when they are stupid enough to think there is a labyrinth of underground passages interconnecting every podunk town covering hundreds of thousands of miles.

Your right that it exists. I've been told that it was actually constructed as a portion of the Undergroung Railr.....just kidding. I was told it was constructed as a means of transporting goods from the canal to the original asylum. No idea if actually used for that.

Yes you are correct. For the most part, "Underground Railroad" is a term used for a secret (underground) operation to help slaves escape north and help them start new lives.
There were, however, many literal underground tunnels and hiding places scattered across the eastern and southern US that were used for this purpose. Some of these tunnels and chambers actually originated or terminated at safe-houses.
What is the lesson here? Before you go shooting your mouth off because you believe you may be right, do a little research. Educate yourself, so that you can really show a know-it-all that he is just as stupid as the people he mocks.
