I admit it took me a minute to notice the street number in the photo.

Nice musical interlude, too -- I wish I had thought of that. BTW, John Warren @ the New York History Blog weighed in with the news flash that a tunnel upstate predates Atlantic Ave by about a decade. Oh well.

Thanks for the links!

Hi Bryan. Thanks for the comment. I wish I had known about the tunnel tour!

Keep your eye on his site -- or maybe call the number there. One's announced for the end of June (it will be sweltering down in that hole) but I heard one of his crew say they've been doing them more than once a month while there's demand.

I think "sweltering down in that hole" would be an apt caption for the photo as well.

And what's YOUR opinion on the new Dolls disc?

I did buy the record...but I haven't listened to it yet...
