FAQs and Stuff
Who and What, Maybe.
If the LTV Squad were t be summarized in one sentence, it might sound a little like this: Active since the late 70's and officially founded in the fabulous 1980's, the LTV Squad is NYC's longest running exploration team. We are a group of professionals, historians, artists and infrastructure fanatics that are in love with all things urban history, art, abandoned or not commonly seen by the public.
The LTVSquad.com website, launched in 2001, overhauled and updated constantly, serves our propaganda needs and as a photo blog style catalog of some of what we may or may not be up to. Print this out and circle those words: Propaganda Needs. In other words, believe everything and nothing you have ever heard about this website or 'the ltv squad'. The truth will only be known to those who were there.
In a nutshell, we explore 'forbidden places' and document all around the NYC (and beyond) area.
We're an extra set of eyes and ears, going where just about no one else would want to, learning and having fun in the process. If we see something seriously wrong, chances are we'll notify the right people.
We're fanatical about doing what we do safely. No need for risking your ass to see something when chances are you can just ask someone that belongs there if they'd mind showing you around... No need to wander through some building that is about to collapse. No need to put yourself or anyone else in any sort of harms way...
We like the old NYC. The NYC that every day is getting paved over by developers and the politicians they have in their back pockets.
We blame lawyers for our hobby being frowned upon. In other countries,
if you want to look around some abandoned place, no one cares. Here, everything
is a liability. F that. What ever happened to 'Personal Responsibility'?
We're just like you... except our hobby is, well, probably different than yours.
General questions? Email Control ( at ) ltvsquad.com (replacing the at, of course).
Maybe we're not into exploring, art, or history at all. Maybe this entire website is a front for a porn company. Maybe we're just business people lookin to sell out, cash in and ruin 'ue' - whatever the fuck that is. Maybe this page doesn't actually exist. Can you see the ones and zeros? Don't get the site confused with the pixels, and the hidden messaes within.
