Alright guys, this is probably one of the most dangerous places to urbex: subway tunnels of NYC
Now, i'm sure everyone has heard rumors (or have even seen) the small shanty towns the homeless sometimes build in abandoned area's of subway tunnels.
Well, I heard one of the largest and most active "shanty town" is located at 135th St, Saint Nicholas Avenue station.
And when I say shanty town, i hear this one is more like a fucking underground city.
Allegedly there's food shops and stores established down there, a sight worth seeing.
The last of the information about the locale is just this:
Go off the platform and start walking down the tunnel for at least five hundred yards and keep looking on the right wall. (There should be a hole in the wall that will lead you there)
This info seems really sketchy but i'm itching to see if this is real.
My only fear really is being hit by a subway as i'm walking the tracks. I know the basics like keep off the 3rd raid, etc..
but is there anyway to be sure when the tracks are active/inactive and how to evade a train if you hear it coming down the tunnel?
I imagine the shanty isn't too hard to get to, as im sure they often have to come out and gather supplies (if the town even exists, that is)
Sooo TL;DR: anyone else know of the alleged city underground in the 135th St. Saint Nicholas Avenue station?
And anyone else have experience wandering active subway/train tunnels and can give pointers/precautions?
Many thanks in advance guys
