Transit officials say three railroad workers have been suspended for turning a storage room under New York’s Grand Central Terminal into an unauthorized “man cave” with a television, a refrigerator stocked with beer, a microwave and a futon couch.
An investigation found that managers at Metro-North Railroad were unaware of the hideaway beneath Track 114 until they received an anonymous tip back in February 2019.
"Many a New Yorker has fantasized about kicking back with a cold beer in a prime piece of Manhattan real estate - especially one this close to good transportation," MTA Inspector General Carolyn Pokorny said. "But few would have the chutzpah to commandeer a secret room beneath Grand Central Terminal and make it their very own man-cave, sustained with MTA resources, and maintained at our riders' expense."
The Metro-North employees — a wireman, a carpenter foreman and an electrical foreman — have been suspended without pay pending disciplinary hearings.
