He should tessellate the cheese.

He needs to put signage up and maybe have Jared make a personal appearance. Looked kind of empty there. Run a few promotions, put in some seating, some ovens, soda machine otherwise the Quiznos the neighbor is building is going to kick his ass.

This was all over the internet in May. It's photos of several different old tunnels, and then some random old man. The story is a bunch of baloney.

Not a stone mason, but the tops of those arches look like deadly fail to me.

They started selling apples slices in a bag at the subway here a few years back... worst tasting apples ever.

To be fair, his fate is still unlearned.

It's really just a place for him to hide the bodies.

When neighbors want to have metro too, through such niches in the walls the tunnel can be prolonged to them.

Making it easier to visit Cousin Larry.

Apart from the transport function Leonid is going to plumb the metro and to make fireplugs.

WTF does that mean?

Some of those tunnels are ancient. Little Lenin there did not dig them. I smell something rotten in Muscovy.

Very limited photo opportunities, you have to wait until his pot crop is harvested and the containers all cleared out.

I think it means he won't be having any actual trains, but will have running water.

Put in a couple of kegerators and a dozen old sofas and the place has possibility.

I am now worried about this man. Has no one learned of his fate? I hate to think of him riding forever beneath the streets of Boston Moscow.

Utter horsepoop.

You can actually watch the lies unravel as you read down the page.

"Hey, why do these tunnels look to be only about 2 meters high? That's far too small for subway cars to fit."

"Uh... because the cars will carry only 3-4 people each. Yeah."

Unless you are referring to the fact it's technically Grand Central "Terminal" it is Grand Central.

I always loved walking through that building. That, and the New York Public Library. It gave me a real appreciation for beaux-arts architecture.
