Can you tell the difference between a secret and a lie when it involves New York City history? This month at Caveat, New York City’s Secrets and Lies storytellers are spinning tales about “What Lies Beneath”: covert operations, secret lives, and the hidden goings on literally happening right now under the daily hustle and bustle of these streets.
