Yesterday Steve Duncan, an urban explorer who’s spent time discovering what’s under the streets of NYC, took us on a 1.5-mile journey around the Village. He described how Minetta Brook, a historic piece of NY’s past infrastructure, still roars underground if you know where to look.
Check out these photos from the tour and a video of the river spotted through a manhole on the West Side Highway:
A crowd gathers in Washington Square Park to hear Steve talk about the manholes and infrastructure.
Steve lifts a manhole cover to reveal the water buried beneath.
Thanks to SideTour guest Bill Shamam for the video!
Even though we weren’t able to go below the surface on the tour, Steve’s professional pictures are awesome reminders of what lies beneath.
