As seen in GAMBIT.
I grew up in New Orleans and I never knew about this place. Apparently, most of the locals I talk to about it have known about it forever.
There’s an abandoned BOMB SHELTER in Lakeview. Wow.
This is what it looked like around 1960.
According to the Office of Civil Defense in the 1950s, the shelter was constructed to prepare for “disasters caused by enemy attacks or other hostile action, or by fire, flood, earthquakes, or other natural causes.”
After scouting this place out, I knew we had to spelunk the bejeezus out of it. Anyway, I won’t waste too much time blabbering about the thing when the VIDEO is this AMAZING. I give you the latest NO adventure in two parts:
Buried Alive: Part 1
Buried Alive: Part 2
See if you can spot this siren from the back of the truck in the video. I’ll give you a hint: it’s yellow.
Cool blueprints. By the way, for more great photos and info about the shelter, check out the following link:
