One of the first things to stand out in this video of Steve Duncan’s adventures in the NYC underground is when he cautions his cameraman to “Watch out for that third rail. That’ll kill you quick,” while walking down an active subway tunnel.
From that moment on, the video takes viewers on a harrowing journey into areas of NYC’s underground that few people have ever seen, such as its first sewer and subway station. The footage is full of perils and tense moments, and at one point Steve Duncan matter-of-factly recites all the things that could kill them at any moment if they aren’t constantly vigilant.
The result of all this, however, is an invaluable insight into the hidden treasures that NYC has to offer that are sadly inaccessible to all but the most daring explorers.
