Workers convert NYC’s Grand Central Terminal into personal ‘man cave’

Three railroad employees have been suspended without pay for transforming a room underneath Grand Central Terminal in New York City into their own personal “man cave.”

The room was furnished with a wall-mounted TV connected to a streaming device, a futon couch, a refrigerator, an air mattress and a microwave, according to a report released by Metropolitan Transportation Authority Insp. Carolyn Pokorny.

“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,” Pokorny said in an online statement.

“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.”

A cabinet just below the TV appeared to be constructed to conceal the television, according to the MTA.

Just outside the room, the report said, there was a cabinet in the exterior locksmith shop storage area that concealed a pullout cot.

The MTA said there is an overwhelming amount of evidence that three Metro-North Railroad employees — a wire man, a carpenter foreman and an electrical foreman –used the unauthorized break room several times. It’s unclear if employees used the room while they were on the clock.
