Yes, that kind of things must be made after midnight...

I wonder the same, going all the way up by the stairs is one hell of a climb... In the other hand, by using the elevator he had more risk of being caught because of the noise of the elevator alerting the guards. Could be that one of the elevators was left on an intermediate floor, let's say 30th, so the boy go by the stairs to the 30th floor and then took the elevator to the top, the noise of the elevator on the 30th floor may not be heard on the ground, where security guards presumibly are.

Anyway, he published more amazing pictures on his instagram. http://instagram.com/demidism/?utm_s...campaign=photo

BTW, He even make to the TV news and newspapers!... I wonder what will happen to this boy now that everybody knows who he is and make some fuss on the media...











This one is funny, looks like taken from "The name of the rose" (NYC-21st century version) or the DaVinci code, or something...

You would think... however to someone in really good shape it might not be as onerous as thought.

For example, each year the CN Tower in Toronto hosts a "stair climb" competion. The record for climbing the 1776 steps... to the main pod at 1122ft... is 7 minutes 52 seconds!

I don't think it is inside of 432, must be in abandoned warehouse somewhere in the city.... I just posted it because I think the scene is kind of funny, like the secret society of skyscraper sneakers...

Yeah, I know, it is completely doable, but although not specially extraordinary, it isn't a peace of cake either...

Oh, got it! I thought those were photos were from inside 432 Park. I'm thinking "The security must be like really lax there..."

The kid effectively sneaked inside 432 Park and took some pictures from the top of it, he even made his way to the top of the crane itself, (you can see some pictures of that at this imgur account http://imgur.com/a/XEIpS/layout/blog, also published a couple of pages back. and some others in the instagram i linked in the other post.

The only picture I was refering as not taken inside of 432 is the one you quoted, the one of the kids with hoods and graffity in the walls, the other pictures are taken by this kid when he indeed tresspased 432 park a few nights ago...

edit. BTW, by reading at the comentaries of his pictures on instagram, apparently the kid got arrested

here is an article about the kid climbing the building and his subsequent arrest.. im sure he'll be back out there exploring buildings and bridges in no time

http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer...facebook_nymag

basically this kid drew way too much attention to himself - didnt set his account to private so everyone in the world could see that he climbed 432 park.. police went and got him since they had the evidence. I for one have started following him on instagram because he take some amazing pictures of New York

Not to feed to much more into this kind of thing, but you have to think this new wave of skyscrapers rising is like a challenge of some kind to these kids. They're out climbing all sorts of things (that WTC kid was recently arrested again), and these towers are like the top of the grail. And it seems the more publicity and arrests made at these towers, others follow. You would think security was tightened around all of these construction sites after the parachute jumpers, but nope. Business as usual.

Anyway, just a little more seen from this kid, and he's seeing the New York we all want to see, just not risk getting arrested to do it...

Honestly, isn’t this building giving New Yorkers the finger?

Did he climb to the top of that boom when he took the shot of the ESB and WTC? Or from this point?

Who are these people? I've never had the pleasure of visiting NY, would love to sometime. But I really don't understand complaints about skyscrapers in Manhattan...Do they think they live in a suburban cow town with "tree line" height restrictions? Do they not realize they live on an island where the only room to build is up? This dialogue continues to baffle me. Complaining about tall buildings in Manhattan is like complaining about the clean air here in Idaho...Seriously???

He just has an axe to grind. Hates rich people. Have no idea how this detracts. Have no idea how this doesn't work at a street level. Small footprint with retail. Unless you look up, it pretty much looks like any other building on Park Ave. ... and all the expensive retail in those buildings. Yes, I loved the building it replaces but that is a different discussion and time marches on. If the same building was built as a corporate headquarters instead of residential for the wealthy, he probably wouldn't say anything. I want to meet the middle class families being driven from their Park Avenue apartments.
