I never thought a lot about this until I read this article over at Listverse. Strange! But we love strange here, don't we?
JP Morgan Vault
JP Morgan and Chase has a couple of notable, highly-secure repositories. One of them is found five stories below street level in Manhattan, New York and, at over a football field in length, is regarded as the largest gold vault in the world. While the sheer size is impressive, some people are more interested in its proximity to the United States’ Federal Reserve Vault, as the two stockpiles are positioned right across the street from each other. Some conspiracists believe the two super-bunkers are connected by an underground tunnel and somehow JP Morgan and the government are in cahoots to manipulate the US economy.
The location of the bank’s other vault was a mystery until in March 2013 when Zerohedge discovered it was located in London below the firm’s office complex. It just so happens this subsurface bank is also next to a governmental reserve, the Bank of England, and the subway tunnel connecting the two coincidentally (or not if you’re a skeptic) shuts down every weekend.As with any proper safe, both the JP Morgan vaults are capable of surviving a direct nuclear blast.
Call me crazy, but it sure seems like a strange coincidence that these two vaults would be so close to other huge vaults with lots of goodies stored inside! Does it seem strange to anyone else?
Coffee in the kitchen this morning. It's supposed to start some tropical rains here soon, and we don't want to be caught in that...believe me!
