The keys to the city: Retired locksmith selling master keys that will open subways, elevators and power stations
A retired locksmith is leaving the door open for anybody who wants to make themselves at home in various areas of New York City's infrastructure. Daniel Ferraris, 69, of Union City, New Jersey, is reportedly not asking questions as he sells the keys, which have some crying foul over a possible security breach.
