If you grew up in NYC, chances are you've had a few nights at Tunnel that you aren't too proud of. But that's okay—we've all been there. Grimy as it was (Giuliani referred to the club as "a menace"), we can't help but acknowledge that the place, immortalized in flicks like Kids and Belly, was a New York landmark. Prior to its shuttering in 2001, a steady mix of club kids, hip-hop heads, gay guys, and Vin Diesel (yep, he worked there as a bouncer) would flow into the 12th Avenue venue's tunnel-like space on a weekly basis to mix, mingle, and yes, stab one another on occasion. Hey, who doesn't like to be kept on their toes?
