Top Definition
Private, enclosed, climate-controlled, elevated walkway that connects two or more buildings. So named for the tendency of white office workers to use them and avoid contact with the street below, where people of color congregate.
"The skywalk system connecting the buildings and interior space of the Peachtree Center complex was the most controversial aspect of the project. Called "honky tubes" by local African-Americans, the skywalks tend to segregate the mostly white visitors rather than encouraging them to experience the life of the city outside the buildings."
