Underground and Overhead: Urban Exploration Adventures

Thursday, April 11, 2013

Moses Gates gives a glimpse into the world of urban exploration, describing his trespasses in cities from Paris to Cairo to Moscow. In Hidden Cities: Travels to the Secret Corners of the World’s Greatest Metropolises he talks about secret art galleries in subway tunnels, breaking into national monuments for fun, sleeping in centuries-old catacombs and abandoned Soviet relics, and getting arrested on top of Notre Dame Cathedral.

Is the perch shown in the photo as precarious as it appears?

How did Mr. Gates gain access?
