Brooklyn’s Historic Subway Tunnel Tours Close

Bob Diamond is a classic New Yorker. Snubbing naysayers to discover, at age 19, the world’s oldest subway tunnel, under Brooklyn’s Atlantic Avenue in 1980. Two years later Bob started leading tour down there — raw tours, often peppered with fiery jabs at city officials. (I enjoyed one in July.)

Last month the city closed them down, alas. Hopefully they’ll come back.

Here’s my story for Lonely Planet.
