Take a Look at the Unseen Side of NYC with ‘Exploring Off-Limits New York’

New York City culture site Animal recently teamed up with photographer and urban explorer 2e to document the making of some photographs in his collection “Exploring Off-Limits New York.

From Brooklyn’s Domino Sugar Factory to The UnderBelly Project, the video and accompanying story takes a look at some of 2e’s not-so-legal and potentially dangerous adventures.

It’s worth noting that 2e doesn’t do any of this without a healthy dose of knowledge. After five-or-so years of spending days on end around the areas he explores, he knows the underbelly of New York better than many of us know the backs of our own hands. The adventures themselves bring a great deal of adrenaline-induced inspiration, so be sure to give the video a thorough watch.

Below are some images, many of which are yet to be seen, captured by 2e. Enjoy the images, enjoy the inspiration, and as always, shoot responsibly:
