FREEDOM reminisces on his first visit to what would become the “Freedom” Tunnel.
“In 1974 (at the tender age of 14), my older brother took me to the Freedom Tunnel for the first time. The location wasn’t named that back then, it was just a freight train tunnel that ran for 3 miles beneath Riverside Park from West 72nd to West 122nd Streets. We entered through a Parks bathroom that had a gaping hole in its floor—an entrance that had been created by Steve 161 with a stick of dynamite and subsequently covered with a large piece of plywood. After climbing through the blasted area, we slid down an embankment of dirt and landed at the base of the train tracks. The two of us spent the day climbing up and down the sides of parked trains, practicing our tags with the small can of spray paint we had with us until it ran out, then we headed home. I had no idea how significant an event that day would become.”
