WCBS TV has great video of a Cold War era fallout shelter discovered intact in the Brooklyn Bridge.  The room included over 350,000 high calorie crackers (the PowerBar of the day) as well as water barrels and medical supplies to be used in the treatment over atomic bomb victims.

Amazing that this treasure trove was passed by thousands of commuters on a daily basis.

Wonder the price drop will be like on those “old” 60gb models?
