It didn’t take long for people to start getting arrested in their attempts to view the underbelly project.
Apparently in the last few days a group of 6 people tried to access the abandoned station and were greeted by the NYPD. The result of course was 24 hours going through the system.
A separate rumor is going around the newsroom that a crew of foreign journalist attempted to access the location and were also arrested, DCPI press passes be damned.
I say it very often on this blog, and I’ll say it again: Don’t go into NYC subway tunnels. It’s bad idea. Tunnels are confined spaces where injury and death are readily possible. The photos of this project are all over the internet. People continue to send us these photos. They are not hard to find. If you want to see the art, do so from your own home.
You’re also wasting the NYPD’s time. There’s few of them on patrol these days and I’d imagine they don’t want to waste time on dumb trespassers. Give them patrol guys a break. I’m sure the last thing they want to be doing is sitting in some dark dirty tunnel waiting for you to show up.
