New York City is brimming with abandoned, hidden, and forgotten spaces. Besides a select group of men who make their living discovering their hidden value, few people are aware these places exist. We put our boots on and went exploring.
This piece about New York’s forgotten and historic aspects while after the jump the footage/mini-doc is about London’s pirate radio phenomenon. I couldn’t decide which piece was more interesting so I put New York first and London second, kinda like NYLON.
Pirate radio is everywhere in London, born in the 60’s from rusting anti-aircraft towers in the mouth of the Thames. Today’s broadcasts are hidden in plain sight, transmitting from secret tower block studios via homemade rooftop antennas. We put our boots on and went exploring.

Very interesting. I thought this was gonna be a whole lotta underground subway station (where Im retreating to when the Nukes hit) type stuff I’ve seen in other docs.
