Rooftopping Times Square.

February 7th, 2014 by

There’s something awesome about being on a hotel rooftop high above Times Square, isolated from the hustle below, that cannot easily be explained. You are at once in the middle of everything, yet invisible to everyone. High above the crossroads of the world on this rooftop, it’s just you and your comrades, making the first stop on a night full of adventures.

This is not to say that this tunnel didn't hold secrets. (more…)

At the very heart of this initiative is a map which shows 50 NYC area industrial locations - the majority of which are factories that no longer exist. Each pin on the map brings you a detailed write up and photos accumulated over our 20+ years of exploring NYC industrial buildings. (more…)
