Q: HOW DO YOU FIND THESE LOCATIONS AND WHAT ARE THE DANGERS?
A: In New York, I have some close friends who know every nook and cranny of the city. I usually call them up for tips if I'm not with them, but I've also found some places on my own. I'm mostly interested in these places for their visual aspects, but some are into exploring these structures because of history or certain industrial artifacts. Some do it for pure thrill. I don't go after danger, and that is why I am very cautious not to do things that would risk my health, such as falling through old floors, getting burnt in steam tunnels, breathing asbestos or toxic fumes, stepping on nails, getting into fights, touching mold, etc. If you think about it, just walking down the street in New York can be really dangerous, depending on when and where you do it.
