The afternoon light on the old police headquarters is like a magnet that pulls me down from Spring St. #what_i_saw_in_nyc #WHPlikealocal

At 240 Centre Street you can find the Beaux Arts-style 1909 Police Headquarters, an official image of the country’s largest and most ‘sophisticated’ police force. The NYPD headquarters retired in 1973 and it became home to luxury condos in 1987. For years, people have spoken about a secret tunnel that used to connect the police headquarters to Callahan’s (now called “ONieals). The tunnel would have provided undetected access for police drinking during the Prohibition era. Callahan’s acted as a speakeasy during those dry years. It has been determined that the tunnel was “filled.” The Police Headquarters basement shows no signs of a tunnel ever existing. However, “ONieals has a tiny basement, home to a vault that is used as a wine cellar now, which takes the shape of a tunnel in the direction of the Police Headquarters. Many who hear of the lore believe the tale to be true. Unless some record of it exists though, nobody will ever know for certain.  #what_i_saw_in_nyc #topnewyorkphoto #bigapple #newyork_ig #newyorklike #nycprimeshot #fox5ny #abc7ny #nbc4ny #cbsnewyork #loves_nyc #historyofnewyork #nycarchitecture #nycbuildings #ig_unitedstates #ig_northamerica #seeyourcity #instagood #usaprimeshot  #wildnewyork  #newyorker #igersofnyc #itravelnyc #timeoutnewyork #dream_new_york #passionpassport #nycityworld #unlimitednewyork #justgoshoot
