Sea Honk Hell

Published on: March 7th, 2005 | Last updated: December 7, 2015 Written by:

What is the “Sea Honk”? And how many red pills do you have to take before you finally find it, whatever it is?

Only the most hardcore of insomniac tunnel running foamers will ever have a chance of knowing what the hell the Sea Honk is. To be fair, there’s very little evidence, and it’s spread somewhat thin around the entire subway system.



All of that said, what you’re looking at is a mystery set of stairs, connecting two very separate subway tunnels which were built at very different eras, decades apart in fact. Why they were built is as much a mystery as the existence of the Sea Honk.

What is known is why it was sealed: up until the 1990s, the tracks in this part of town were a haven for homeless people. These stairs provided another route for the homeless to access the tunnels undetected.

    I wish there was a way of opening the grate. I tried for about a minute before giving up but it was interesting to hear the sounds from down below.

    Same. Hate that it’s still locked up. All those anti-homeless gates have proven sturdy over time.
