Busted. New York real estate isn’t cheap, but three transit employees managed to score a free space, if you will. The workers found a forgotten storage room under Track 114 – underneath Grand Central Station in NYC.
The 3 transit employees turned the room into a break room, a ‘man-cave’ if you will – equipped with a futon, Flat screen TV, internet, and even a fridge (filled with adult beverages). Their unauthorized man cave was discovered by transit officials and the 3 workers have been suspended pending disciplinary hearings.
Officials say the space presented a ‘fire hazard’. CNN
