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

43675 ratings | 1986562 views
This is a film I made after some adventures underground with Steve Duncan (undercity.org) last summer. We also have a teaser video which you can watch on my vimeo page (vimeo.com/​5752275). Steve and I just completed another underground expedition with Norwegian explorer Erling Kagge (en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Erling_Kagge). It was featured in a three page article on the front page of the NY Times metro section and was written by Alan Feuer (nytimes.com/​2011/​01/​02/​nyregion/​02underground.html). We were also covered by NPR's Jacki Lyden who's report will be aired on 1/2/11 and posted on NPR's site. Shot on a canon 5d mkii with canon 24 f/1.4 (version 1) with the zacuto rapid fire, Zoom H4N and a sennheiser g2 wireless lav. The zacuto was really great at being there when I needed it but also staying out of the way. Please leave a comment below and let me know what you think. Thanks for watching!

I liked the video. The tresspassing charges are reasonably strict though. They'd have to shut down all train traffic to clean you up if you got hit, and your mess could potentially trail from impact position until the train is able to stop. Shutting the train systems down every time someone wants to commit suicide sounds very expensive, so keeping people out is totally reasonable in my opinion.

I hope you carry weapons. That place looks like a magnet for thugs.

The second he said the thing about the train cars being to long to go around curves my autism recognized him as a Train Autistic

Be careful going into confined spaces and sewers. The displacment of oxygen can make you pass out instantly and make you suffocate as you cant escape

Yes it’s awesome to random people. Work down there for 9 years and you’ll figure out it’s a disgusting filthy danger filled work place. Not many betas or woman.

Dude... you'd be amazed at how far a button down shirt, tie, orange vest and hard-hat will get you. If anyone asks just say you're surveying and then give a wrong address close by. When they tell you-you're in the wrong place, apologize and mozy on your way free as a bee. It would also be perfectly normal to have lights and a camera as a surveyor.

I saw a doc on the Sewer Kids of Bucharest, Romania. That was really interesting. Around 1,100 kids living underground in Romania. Most having Aids or very least HIV + . These videos are quite interesting.
