Multiple Underbelly-related Arrests

Published on: November 5th, 2010 | Last updated: December 15, 2015 Written by:

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.

    Hmmmm . . . . I’m trying to figure out why anyone would go near the place at this point. I know why they want to; I’d like to go down there too. But it seems to me that anyone with an ounce of sense would assume that the police are watching the place. As you say, they surely don’t want to waste their time on this, but they really have little choice. They’ve got to protect and serve, and they’re pretty much been dared to keep watch.
