Are there public passageways in NYC that allow you to walk long distances either underground or otherwise shielded from the elements?

The recent snowstorm has gotten me thinking about underground and indoor passageways in NYC. I have known for years that you can walk from Broadway all the way to 5th avenue via the public passageways that run under 49th street as part of Rockefeller Center and the Time Life Building. Are there other instances of long distance passageways in NYC, either underground or aboveground?
Other examples might be subway stations that you can enter and walk several blocks without paying the fare, or building atriums that line up so that you could walk a few blocks mostly indoors.
