claire posted this on my fbook wall. soooo interesting! makes me look at london in a whole new way.
Here's some guys in St. Louis doing the same thing: St. Louis Urban Exploration Society
Personal thoughts: I think that people like feeling a sense of control over their environment by knowing the secret nooks and crannies and being where they are "not supposed to be." There's an interesting explanation at the 5-minute mark in the video where a guy talks about how he read adventure novels when he was younger and grew up and found that he didn't have a way to be adventurous in his daily life. Urban exploration answered this for him.

This is the floor at the Standard Hotel restaurant in New York. Wow! I really really like the look of this! It also kind of reminds me of the story that I heard once that the rouble was once so inflated in Russia that it was actually cheaper to wallpaper your bathroom in currency notes than to buy wallpaper. I can't find that story on the internet anywhere, though. Sometimes I feel like there needs to be classes on how to google search. There are so many synonyms out there!
