The Rapid Transit Central Power House:
Now better known as the “Bat Cave,” this coal-burning plant was built in 1896 to power the MTA’s expansion of transit lines into Brooklyn. When the plant was deactivated in the mid-20th century, the building was eventually co-opted by an enclave of squatters. Tales of drug den violence abound—it is rumored that a homeless man was thrown through a window to his death. Today, as the building overlooks one of the most toxic canals in the country, used syringes still litter the floor. To curb any concerns, used syringes were not used in the making of this video, and no animals were harmed.
