Video Shows Underworld of New York City

A new video features urban explorer Steve Duncan as he adventures in the abandoned subway tunnels beneath New York City.

Wired points to the new video that takes a rarely seen look under New York City.

"Andrew Wonder's video follows Duncan during some recent adventures in New York. To start, Wonder and Duncan take a quick jaunt down the subway line to a "secret" subway station that's familiar to Jalopnik readers - the City Hall subway station.

As if that weren't cool enough, the pair take us into the underground Canal Street sewer in Manhattan. The sewer, New York's first covered sewer, was roofed over in 1812. Before that, it was an open ditch - a canal, if you will, that gave Canal Street its name."
