Fun Facts

  • Because of its surprisingly strategic location, Plattsburgh, New York, was once a top Soviet nuclear strike target. The giant siren on the SUNY -- Plattsburgh campus was to warn of a nuclear attack.
  • Contrary to spookier assumptions, the "catacombs" under the MacDonough Hall dorm at SUNY -- Plattsburgh were to serve as bomb shelters, due to fears of a Soviet nuclear strike.
