In nearly every good mystery or fantasy story, there is a secret room somewhere in a mansion. Every villain or super hero has a secret lair for them to hide in, too. This idea is so cool, that most of us wish we could have hidden compartments or entire rooms in our homes. Lucky for us, this doesn’t have to be a fantasy. Here are some real-life examples of secret rooms in people’s houses- both discovered by accident and intentionally built.
30. “Girl Finds Secret Room In Her NYC Apartment” Went Viral on TikTok
In March of 2021, a young woman named Samantha Hartsoe uploaded a video to Tik Tok that was both horrifying and fascinating. For a while, she felt a draft coming through her New York City Apartment. No matter what temperature the heat was set to, the apartment still felt cold. One day, she realized that there was an actual breeze coming through from behind the bathroom mirror. When she lifted the mirror, she discovered something shocking. There was a secret room in her apartment!
After bravely climbing through the hole in her bathroom wall, Samantha realized that it wasn’t just a secret room. It was an entire second apartment. The front door was left open, and the landlord did not keep the heat on in this other space. Not only was it freezing cold, but it was also very unsafe. She uploaded this video to Tik Tok, and it went viral. She has since appeared on The Ellen Degeneres Show and many other programs.
