Beneath the City
I don't know about you, but it seems like every time I fumble with my keys and nearly drop them, I happen to be walking over a grate in a sidewalk. Which heightens the drama of nearly dropping my keys because, how on earth would I ever get them back?
Well, thanks to my friend Murph, now I know. Her coworker Alex dropped a favorite ring down a sidewalk grate, and it was rescued by a friendly pair of Con-Ed workers! Gothamist covered the story, and gave it a little Lord of the Rings flair, plus helpful information about how to get something back if it's dropped down a grate. But I still think I'll be tightly clutching my keys on the way home tonight :)
I wonder what else is down there?
