One of those urban legends you always hear about are the caves said to be beneath much of the City of Watertown. Now thanks to a western NY there will be some exploration of the City's underworld...One opening on Newell Street was sealed up years ago when kids crawled in and had to be rescued.
Now that will be opened and a special security gate fabricated by the exploring group will be installed. This will allow access when needed. Exploration will also occur at the "rock hole" on the City's west side where questions about storm water drainage may finally be answered.
City resident Doug Anderson has helped in hooking up the exploring group with the proper city officials and logistical and legal questions have been resolved.
Nobody thinks Watertown will be another Howe Caverns, but interest in the geology is there and the opening of the Newell Street cave will be an event of sorts...It won't attract Geraldo as this is not a case of Al Capone's vault, but maybe we can get Brian Ashley to crawl in for a look-see.
