Underground railroad

Beneath the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York is a secret train platform that was built in the 1930s to allow VIPs a private entrance. Most notably, it was used by Franklin D. Roosevelt and still houses the train car and private elevator, which were both large enough for FDR's armor-plated Pierce Arrow car. It has since been the site of a party hosted by Andy Warhol, a home for squatters, and a destination for urban explorers (IMAGES HERE).
