    UNDERCITY: Exploring off-limits urban areas

    Urban History PhD candidate Steve Duncan explores urban areas that are pretty much unseen and definitely off-limits to the public. Link is to a 27 minute video of him exploring NYC subway tunnels, The Lincoln tunnel, Canal street sewers and the Williamsburg Bridge. The video is so fascinating and somewhat heart-racing.

    It's dangerous and illegal for sure, but really cool to see what he discovers.

    WIRED: UNDERCITY

    Also, two other links from the first link. One is an NPR interview/article about Steve Duncan. Second link is to a NYT article about urban exploring. Very cool.

    NPR: Exploring Underside of NYC

    NYT: The Wilderness Below Your Feet

    Im sure there is all sorts of crazy stuff like this in cities. Forgotten tunnels, basements, etc. I love watching these.

    Re: UNDERCITY: Exploring off-limits urban areas

    Thanks for the link. Would love to see a video like this done in Ames.

    And another vote for the jaretec Urban Exploring at ISU thread as the greatest ever.
