Long Island Hospital Chapel Tunnel
Works Progress Administration (W.P.A.) workers constructed a tunnel at the former Long Island Hospital in Boston Harbor, connecting the primary facility with its chapel. WPA Bulletin:
Previous to WPA inmates of the Long Island Hospital were unable to attend church services during inclement weather as the hospital and chapel were not connected. WPA has constructed a 210 foot tunnel from the hospital to the chapel and a wooden approach similar to the chapel design.
