When you explore as much of NYC as we have, you can't help but to notice trends and issues - many of which our (often corrupt) elected officials ignore.

You’re probably asking yourself why The LTVSquad, a group & website dedicated to sneaking into abandoned buildings and tunnels – is featuring a post about an abandoned park trail in Queens. Why would we spend our time at such a place? The answer is simple: we’re […]



Vancouver Vs. NYC Subway Tunnel construction

This was one of the easiest subway tunnel explorations I’ve ever done. It is the mouth of the tunnel for the new ‘Canada Line’ subway route in Vancouver, B.C.



The government officially calls explorers and graffiti artists ‘terrorists’.

It took them a long time to get to it, but the US government has finally taken the leap and called explorers and graffiti artists ‘terrorists’.



The Country of No

When we were growing up, we were always told no. No, you sit across the street from school waiting for friends (cops would chase you away). No you can’t get a car. No you can’t grow your hair out, or wear those pants. No you can’t have this, drink that, or smoke the green stuff. […]
