Most People Have No Idea This Unique Tunnel In Cleveland Exists

Like any city that experienced an industrial boom and rapid slow-down, Cleveland is a modern urbex dream. There’s abandoned buildings everywhere, from massive warehouses to tiny homes. Every city has rumors of underground tunnels: the idea is so full of mystery and adventure, kids and adults alike enjoy the intrigue. But Cleveland actually does have abandoned underground tunnels.

The Detroit-Superior subway line was operational until 1954.
