In the “you just can’t make this stuff up” department, three railway workers at Grand Central Station in New York City converted an unused room below the station into a private room for themselves.
The remodelling of the subterranean room was only reported last year, and the workers have furnished it with all the modern conveniences~there was a wall-mounted TV with a streaming device, a sofa, beer fridge, air mattress and microwave. There was even a pull out bed cleverly hidden in an adjoining work room.
As reported by MSN, Metropolitan Transportation Authority Inspector Carolyn Pokorny understood the fascination with it all:
“Many a New Yorker has fantasized about kicking back with a cold beer in a prime piece of Manhattan real estate– especially one this close to good transportation. But few would have the chutzpah to commandeer a secret room beneath Grand Central Terminal & make it their very own man-cave sustained with MTA resources, and maintained at our riders’ expense.”
The three men who allegedly created and used the room have been suspended without pay and denied their involvement, despite addressed packaging and half filled beer cans with finger prints on the exterior.
Most of the furnishing had been commandeered from the Transportation Authority, and the room was powered by a jury rigged hack into the electrical system.
