Back in the days of prohibition, bootleggers built tunnel systems to transfer their booze from place to place. Then, once prohibition was lifted, these tunnels were used as safe and discrete transportation to brothels.

However, now many of these tunnels have become safe and discrete living places for the homeless.

One such tunnel system that is now occupied by the homeless is located in Colorado Springs and has been given the not-so-flattering name of "The Devil's Tunnel."
