Way back in 1970’s New York there was once a place we called “The Time Tunnel”. A dark scary block long underground corridor that connected the 34th street F-train with Madison Square Garden.
I remember many a week night taking the F from Church Avenue with my cousin Pete to see a Rangers game at the Garden, and walking through this homeless filled tunnel that smelled so bad and looked like something from that movie “Escape from New York”.
It was filled with dozens and dozens of New York’s finest “Street People” who lived there during the coldest of winter months. Just lining the walls of the "Time Tunnel" and whatever little nooks and crannies the place had as well.
And let me tell you this tunnel was real damn long too, it stretched from Sixth Avenue to Seventh Avenue. So this wasn’t just some little underpass, no, this was a freaking city.
Yeah, this was "Kojack’s" New York, and it just isn’t the same anymore. No, just too polished and too clean nowadays, and no more “Time Tunnels” before a Rangers game to walk through, and scare the living "shit" out of you.
