video of the day: Undercity.

I just had to share this amazing documentary I just watched on Vimeo:

"Undercity", made by Andrew Wonder, takes us on a journey through parts
of New York City that are forbidden to the general public. No permits
were granted here either as we follow urban historian and photographer
Steve Duncan in what is one of the best documentaries I've seen in a while.

(running time:28 minutes)
