Touring the 25th street basements was very interesting to say the least! Some of the basements floors had been concreted, others were still dirt. Some were lit up with storage and others were nearly pitch black and very eerie. Something that every single basement had in common was the obvious sealed entrance openings. Some openings were sealed with concrete, others with brick. They were of all different shapes and sizes. Almost every business had an entrance that would be facing the opposite side of the street, which would mean if there was a tunnel; it would be going from underneath 25th street from one business to the other. There were also East and West entrances that looked to have led to the business directly next door or potentially the range of the entire street.
