Notes from the Vegas Underground
catacombs of ancient Rome served as houses of
worship for Jews and Christians. The sewers
of Paris yielded gold, jewels, and relics of
the revolution. A slave trade thrived in underground
chambers along Portland, Oregon's, waterfront.
And thousands of street people lived in the
subway tunnels of New York City.

What discoveries wait in the dark? What's beneath

the Neon: Life and Death in the Tunnels of Las
chronicles O'Brien's adventures in subterranean

no pots of gold under the neon rainbow.

note: Sparks was incorporated in 1905, Las Vegas in 1911,
but Mayor Oscar Goodman wanted a centennial on his watch,
so he decided to celebrate the railroad's auction of land
in what became downtown Gomorrah South. The above article
from the 5-10-2005 Reno Kazoo-Journal fails to note the
distinction. Because Vegas is Vegas, several "centennial
books" have been published, while Sparks had to print
its own. See the oldest photo of Sparks published in conjunction
