Crystal City Underground
Billed as an underground mall, the Crystal City shops are connected by wide, well-lit sidewalks (halls?!) that lead to a bakery, an optometrist, a theater ... and more.
Halloween would be a perfect day to write about subterranean walkways -- if only they were creepy, scary, low-ceilinged and cobwebby. They are anything but.
Still, they're odd enough that today's the perfect day to introduce them. The tunnels are one of the funkiest things about my new work 'hood — and the weirdness is welcome!
