The New York Post reports on the unbelievable story of how a set of keys to the city ended up on eBay last month. Retired New Jersey locksmith Daniel Ferraris sold a “firemen’s key ring”, which included keys to gain control of virtually any elevator in the city, knock out power to municipal buildings, skyscrapers and streetlights and allow access to hundreds of spaces. The key ring was purchased by a Post reporter – leaving unanswered questions about the danger of having these keys available to the public. (New York Post)
