Undercity: the Hidden Spaces of NYC by Steve Duncan & Andrew Wonder

A 30 minute video showing a five-day journey into NYC's infrastructure. The impressive footage takes us through manholes, an abandoned tube station, sewage waterfalls and the inside of a bridge mega-structure. It also features an interesting story about the communities that live underground and interviews with some of its members.

Steve Duncan, a 32-year-old student of public history, has logged more than a decade exploring subways, sewers and storm drains. He is "an urban historian and photographer who tries to peel back the layers of a city to see what's underneath." Last summer he joint forces with Andrew Wonder, a former film student with a track record in similar videos, to shoot this project.
