Minneapolis-St. Paul is great because of all the sandstone caves. What are some other good cities for this, that have large urban exploring communities.

Pittsburgh and it's surrounding coal towns/mill towns. During college I used to do this all the time, not exactly safe due to squatters and whatnot...but that's something that all urban explorers know ahead of time anyway. But the entire SWPA/WV area is nothing but old boarded up buildings/factories/churches/train yards/schools/etc, old tunnels/bridges/overpasses, some caves and whatnot, etc. I'm imagining it's something of an Appalachian version of Minneapolis/Saint Paul in terms of what you would find.

I dunno...the old homepage of "The Pittsburgh Urban Explorers" seems to be down, but I think there were a few links in this thread : Urban Exploration

But go to youtube and type in some random phrases like "Pittsburgh urban exploration" and you'll find some good stuff.
