The Vine: October 11, 2013

I came across a brief mention of a NY no-man's-land, The Hole, on the internet and found it fascinating.

Additional information seems hard to come by. Are you familiar with it? Do you know of a good publication discussing the history?

Thanks for your attention,


Dear Hunter,

I found a few useful-looking links here; I'd heard of it before, but have never visited, and now I'd like to read anything more in-depth that the readers come up with. Readers?
