Some of these include the Mole People who live in the tunnels of Grand Central Terminal, the secret tunnels of Chinatown, home to many gang wars, the great water system that lies beneath our feet, the perils involved in building the subways and vehicular tunnels, the beautiful art work that is displayed below ground, the special tunnel built by August Belmont for the Steinway Piano Company and many more fascinating things.

Here's a gallery of photos from some of our best loved programs
Coconut Lotions for Day and Night
A great time was had by all and everyone went home with two tins of silky smooth coconut lotions. One had the invigorating scent of Bergamot for day and the other with calming Lavender to ease them into gentle sleep for night. Just in time for the winter season!
The Ancient Art of Paper Cutting
We had great fun and created beautiful artwork with excellent guidance from Sine Hjort as she taught this fascinating craft. We learned how to fold paper, cut basic patterns and connect lines. The concept of negative space was challenging, but we all ended up with lovely sillouettes to take home.
