A Beautiful Home on Park Hill and the story of the tunnel

This house is by Sutherland Park. Its a very interesting area. A hotel was to be built at the top of Park Hill (right around where this house is) but it ended up just being ruins. Anyway, for quite some time, we have been trying to locate a mystery.

The hotel was going to have exclusive access via a railway tunnel. The tunnel was created and was abandoned with the rest of the site. However, the tunnel became a legendary site in Yonkers and many kids would travel there to explore it. Eventually the tunnel was filled in or was it? The forum on Yonkers, SoYo has some very interesting pictures of below Sutherland Park. It seems that the tunnel was only PARTIALLY filled. Stay tuned. We have some exploring to do...
