Open Culture Features Video on New York Subway Tunnels

The Open Culture site is featuring a video by urban historian Steve Duncan titled “Undercity: Exploring the Underbelly of New York City.” In the 28 minute doc, Duncan walks New York subway tunnels, dodging trains, third rails, and the police. He talks to homeless tunnel residents, one of whom has lived underground for 28 years.

Then he takes us down to the two-hundred year old sewer tunnel on Canal Street. Rushing waste water and historic vaulted brickwork provide a backdrop for his explanation of how the sewer was built.

Finally Duncan climbs to the top of one of the towers on the Williamsburg Bridge for a breathtaking view of the city at night.

All his footage was captured with a Canon 5D Mark II. And he does all of this as a “trespasser” on city property in the middle of the night. Great suspense and drama in the editing. Check it out.
