    One thought on “Invisible Frontier: Exploring the Tunnels, Ruins, and Rooftops of Hidden New York”

    1. Two 30 year old guys lead an obnoxious band of overgrown teenagers to trespass all over New York. The history bits are good and the actual exploring of places is good, but the entire personal narrative is cringe-worthy and the editorializing made my eyes bleed.Thoughts I had while reading:-omg you pretentious jackholes-These guys are people who think Holden Caulfield is someone to admire-Yeah, dilettantes at best-overeducated suburban cowards-chickenshit morons (not including the bridge-climbing [...]

    2. This was written by a member of a group that calls themselves "urban explorers". They are based in New York and I thought it was well and interestingly written and only took exception to their motives and methods. About half the time I thought they were nothing more than overgrown adolescents, indulging in thrill-seeking and trespassing in the name of science and enlightenment. Sneaking around and alternately avoiding the law and getting arrested, or at the very least, kicked out of their experi [...]

    3. Invisible Frontier chronicles the adventures of one of New York City's most prominent urban exploration groups, Jinx Project, as they access hidden and forgotten areas around the city. From unused subway stations, to abandoned ruins, to the tops of the city's most famous bridges, this book reads like a travelogue of forbidden sites.The exploits described here are truly impressive, and will be of interest to any urban explorers. I particularly liked the historical background provided for each sit [...]

    4. This was a mixed bag for me. On the one hand, the whole time I was reading all I could think was "Wow, pretentious much?" But on the other hand, I love New York. All I want to do is lace up my sneaks and walk all over looking for treasures myself. Though I'm not quite crazy enough to explore the way they did.

    5. This is the kind of topic that I usually enjoy, and I had great expectations for this book, but I found it dull and wasn't able to finish it. This type of thing is better when presented in a good documentary - I felt like the book was just put together quickly to capitalize on the popularity of urban exploration at the time and make some money.

    6. This was quite a dull read. Love the idea of exploring forbidden places and have done it myself, it's very exciting. What wasn't exciting was the way this book was written. Just let me say this book isn't for everyone.

    7. This book isn't about urban exploration, it's about proving the author is smart. There's less information on the ostensible topic than on the author's wholly pedestrian opinions about civilization, gender, and so on. The asides about history are sometimes welcome, but tend to quickly stray from the places under discussion to well-known facts presented in the "Bet you didn't know THAT, huh?!" tone. I recommend "Access All Areas" instead.
