6. JFK’s secret Palm Beach Bunker
The bunker, which was built in just 10 days, could hold up to 30 members of the Kennedy family and key white house staff, was stocked with enough food, water, and supplies to last for a month, and could act as a temporary command center for the entire country. The entrance was hidden in a thicket of trees, and to even make it inside, you’d have to pass a radiation quarantine … By the time it was disclosed to the public in 1974, it had long sat abandoned. When it was reopened for the first time in 20 years, it was discovered to have severely flooded, destroying most of what was left inside.
Today, thanks to the Palm Beach Maritime Museum, you can take a boat out to the man-made Peanut Island and see it for yourself.

11. Looking into Parisian windows
New York-based photographer Gail Albert Halaban first began peering into people’s windows many years ago, and her fascination with the public versus the private in urban life inspired a voyeuristic photo project and then a book, Out My Window, in fall 2012. It caught the eye of Cathy Remy, photo editor for Le Monde’s Mmagazine, who invited Halaban to take her show on the road to Paris a few weeks later. Remy and Halaban found participants through Facebook, friends of friends, and word of mouth, and all gave permission in advance, though reactions toward the nature of the shoot were a bit polarizing.
