Atlantic Avenue & Court Street Brooklyn New York 11201

When walking down the streets of the city, folks from Brooklyn apartments may just forget how much action is going on under their feet. A whole universe of twisting, turning tunnels live right beneath the soles of their shoes, and some of these tunnels have more history than the buildings that sit upon them. The Atlantic Avenue Tunnel sits beneath one of the busiest streets in the entire borough, and is officially the oldest subway tunnel in the entire world. It was built in 1844 (making it older than the Brooklyn Bridge and the Empire States Building) entirely by hand and primitive tools and equipment, and has gone on to become one of Brooklyn's biggest secrets. With an apartment near the Atlantic Avenue Tunnel, you can have all that history right below your feet at every moment of the day, and can visit this landmark with just a simple walk down the street.


Though the building of their railway was quite historical, after it was shut down, it became a shadow in people's memory until 1980, when Bob Diamond rediscovered the tunnel, and made history. Now, the tunnel is home to a number of tours everyday, taking you inside one of the most mysterious and beautiful areas of Brooklyn's underground, offering up some of the most breathtaking images you're likely to see in the city. Those with apartments near the Atlantic Avenue Tunnel can find themselves in the best parts of town (since the tunnel lies under Brooklyn Heights and Cobble Hill), while also staying neare one of the most historicaal spots in not just Brooklyn, but the entirety of New York City.


Though the Atlantic Avenue Tunnel may not get the same kind of attention as bigger landmarks such as the Brooklyn Bridge of the Statue of Liberty, it has historical value well beyond these two famed New York hotspots, as anyone with a Brooklyn apartment can tell you. Tours are happening every day, showing you these dark and twisting historical tunnels, making an apartment near the Atlantic Avenue Tunnel a wise investment for any history buff.
