Young. Curious. Bold. Willing to get arrested. These are some of the traits of “urban explorers” who peek behind the cities’ curtains and scale forbidden towers in a lust for adventure.

This younger generation of explorers are rediscovering big cities around the world (in the case of this video, New York) and posting their exploits on Instagram. Their activities are often illegal and dangerous, which makes them all the more interesting to those on the outside looking in. Enjoy the video, which is entirely legal to watch from the comfort of your sofa.

And if you decide to participate in these kinds of activities, consider yourself warned.
