There is also a tunnel that runs parallel to the arterial near Burrstone road bridge, well there are two, one is newer and runs under the bridge, and the other is old and I'm not sure how far it goes, they both have about a foot of water running through along with some serious looking spiders and other things that you don't wan't falling or crawling on you in a dark tunnel.

There are about 7 tunnels leading from the Masonic Home. Some of them go to Proctor Park. A nurse was raped in one of those tunnels in the early 80s.

There is also a tunnel between the Whitesboro Jr. High and the Parkway Middle School.

Maybe Mike Arcuri can hide in the tunnels from the truth. I know cockroaches LIKE the dark, and being underground.

What a fraud.

Oh look a forum I can mention how Mike Arcuri is a homewrecker who's got his kids schoolmates talking about what a womaniiser their father is. All Mike has to do is show some proof but like when he wrecked their home he doesn't care about Carmen and Dominique Arcuri. Only staying in congress. It was always about Mike, not his kids. Why else would a father wreck the home if he cared at all? Yu think Mike Arcuri cares about your family and family values?

I heard there are tunnels by the OD running north and south. I also have heard about all the tunnels on Genny connecting 257 to the stanley and the ones to Masonic home. Why were they build/dug in the first place? Any on the west side?

There are several areas in the lower down town area where the old scetions of the Eric Canal ran. They were filled in to make roads in some areas like around the Old Post office , OD, 100 block of Genesee Street and Hotel Street to mention a few. Look at old maps form the early 1800's they show the water ways for the delivery of goods to warehouses and stores. Some of the upper tunnels ( Most of which have been filled in by either collapes of building projects ) where used for easy transist arcross road ways and people traffic.
The lower tunnels at Union station where to travel to the train platforms. Most all are filled with water and sealed in now. Several homes in the corn hill area had tunnels. On the 1000 block of Dudley Ave there was a passageway that was sealed due to kid traffic.
