UNDERCITY New York City urban exploration w STEVE DUNCAN, dir. Andrew Wonder - YouTube

Figured I would share this video, being an architecture and city nerd, it is just amazing to see some of the under city areas that he has explored.

That's cool, I saw it a year ago too. Saw it again on another forum and figured I would post it here...besides, it is a pretty great video and worth reposting.

A grown man from some fly over state exploring the subway tunnels and acting like he "discovered' them.

Teenagers, homeless people, MTA Workers, the mole people, criminals and all other types of True Yorkers have been in those tunnels for the last 50 years. This is nothing New.

Sorry you feel that way....but I still think it is a good video to watch from those who haven't been in those tunnels before....which I am guessing are most true New Yorkers who have never stepped foot in them or seen any of that.

As for the "flyover" comment, that just makes you sound like a shallow New Yorker and that is never pretty.

Go to college for geology and work for the MTA. All the tunnel surfing you can do.

Or you can call master splinter and he can guide you through everything for a fee.... I lost his number tho.

That sounds like a great idea! Thanks for all the helpful advice on a random YouTube video that I thought might be interesting enough to post in a related forum page....you know, if you don't care about things like this you can always no bother looking at the thread....but, that's just me.

Oh, and the line of work I have been studying for might actually put me involved with things like this from time to time hopefully because it is actually something that interests me.

Don't worry about the dude from Flushing he seems to be having a bad day, but yea I seen this video a while back it's pretty ill imo. I'd love to explore the hidden parts of the city with my friends.
