This New Jersey Tunnel System Is Said To Be The Gateway To Hell

New Jersey is full of urban legends and local lore, the story of the gateway to hell is one of the more popular. The Clifton drainage tunnel gained notoriety after being featured by the infamous publication, Weird New Jersey. It is a popular hangout for wayward youth, and trespassing is illegal. It’s probably not a place you’d want to explore anyway, shady characters frequent the area. Still, the legend is… legendary!
