    Is it just me or do photos 5 and 6 look like the subway station from preditor 2, the subway scene.

    Some of the New York pictures looked familiar. Turns out it was a level in the game The Darkness.

    Was there not a video on here (CVPL) about a guy that went down with his friend (who was videoing the 'adventure')? It was about exploring NYC and he was in the subway for a good portion of the video (and climbed a bridge later on).

    Yes, there was.



    City Hall station is now used as a loop for the Downtown 6 Train to turn around it. Stay on the train at the last stop and you will get a quick little tour as it turns around to come back out on the Uptown side. It's pretty cool. The Transit Museum in New York offer tours once or twice a year but you have to be a member.

    I done this last year,you get about 30 seconds to have a gawk at the former station as the train passes through. This was the crappy video i recorded on my phone but gives you a rough idea of what it's like.

    Wasn't The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie about something like this?

    I love the part in that documentary of the guy in New York when he knows the homeless guys in the abandoned railway lines. He's obviously been there quite a lot.

    there is the bit in ghostbusters 2 as well where they explore abandoned lines

    Not really whole lines, just bits and pieces really. The abandoned station and track at Aldwych is often used as a film and TV set.

    Chicago found out the hard way back in '92 about 'keeping old maps'. When drilling for new pylons (to protect the bridges) on the Chicago River, they broke through and hit some old 'coal tunnels'. The soot and sediment were slowly pushed into the tunnels until the water from the River broke through and began to flood the entire 'Loop' (city centre).
