The Tunnel, 220 Twelfth Avenue: Now Foxy Productions, Wallspace, Derek Eller, Moving Image, etc.
This massive former warehouse, whose long central space used to have trains running through it delivering goods to and from the Hudson River piers, became the sprawling club The Tunnel
in 1987, which, after many legal troubles, closed in 2001. In its time it was legendary
: it featured an entire room, "The Kenny Scharf Lava Lounge," designed by Kenny Scharf; Vin Diesel was once a bouncer
there; and it was the setting of the opening sequence
. Since it closed (and its owner Peter Gatien and his wife were deported to Canada for tax evasion), it's been parceled off into many different businesses, including several galleries. It's also the venue for the new Armory Week video art fair The Moving Image
