Foot tunnels

Foot/pedestrian tunnels have a unique vibe to them, and I live for places with unique vibes (and also sex). They’re mostly empty of people, often echoey, sometimes humid. They can feel claustrophobic, and their visual sameness can hypnotize, confuse one’s sense of space. They’re not obviously attractive (therefore, to the contrarian, they are!). They’re non-places, only existing to be passed through, but that very non-placeness can also make them feel like a welcome respite from the world, somewhere to non-exist in for a little while.

And a few I haven’t:


Tell me about your favorite foot-tunnels or other vibe-places!
