Brooklyn Bridge Reveals Hidden Secrets

Brooklyn Bridge Reveals Hidden Secrets

NEW YORK -- Workers inspecting the structural foundations of the Brooklyn Bridge have uncovered a Cold War-era trove of basic provisions that were stockpiled amid fears of a nuclear attack.

The estimated 352,000 Civil Defense All-Purpose Survival Crackers are apparently still intact, said Joseph Vaccaro, a supervisor at the city Transportation Department. The metal water drums, each labeled ``reuse as a commode,'' did not fare as well, and they are now empty.

Sounds like a good place to hold a rave.
