I was just wondering what cities in the united states have tunnels. The only tunnels I really know about are the one's in Pittsburgh, PA and the tunnels along the Pennsylvania turnpike.
What other cities have tunnels?

New York has a lot of highway tunnels (Holland, Lincoln, Brooklyn-Battery, Park Avenue) plus all of the rail tunnels. Bridges and tunnels in New York City - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Norfolk, VA area has some highway tunnels (Downtown and Midtown tunnels) and highway bridge-tunnels such as the Hampton Roads Bridge-Tunnel, the Monitor-Merrimac Bridge-Tunnel and the 17 mile-long Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel. Wikipedia lists 8 bridge-tunnels in the world. All three American bridge-tunnels are in the Norfolk area. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...#United_States

The Hampton Roads area of Virginia (Norfolk, Suffolk, Portsmouth, Virginia Beach, Chesapeake and Hampton) have "Bridge Tunnels" because there are so many rivers along with the bay.
It's sort of neat just driving along over a bridge which suddenly dips into an underwater tunnel beneath the river.

Detroit-Windsor Ontario tunnel

I-10 tunnel into Mobile, Alabama

Eisenhower tunnel (I-70) Rockies west of Denver

I am afraid of driving in tunnels so I never forget their locations.

I told my Dad we were about to go through a tunnel in Cincinnati on a recent trip. Upon going through the tunnel he looked at me confused and asked, "That was it?" I guess he wasn't impressed.

DC has tunnels. Baltimore has some very long tunnels. I think Philly has some and let's not forget the Big Dig in Boston
