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.

How did Mr. Gates gain access?
