Hidden Cities : In this finely-written book, Gates describes his immersion in the worldwide subculture of Urban Exploring; how he joined a world of people who create secret art galleries in subway tunnels, break into national monuments for fun, and travel the globe sleeping in centuries-old catacombs and abandoned Soviet relics rather than hotels or bed-and-breakfasts. They push each other further and further - visiting the hidden side of a dozen countries, discovering ancient underground Roman ruins, scaling the Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Williamsburg bridges, partying with mole people, sneaking into Stonehenge, and even finding themselves under arrest on top of Notre Dame Cathedral. Ultimately, Gates contemplates why he and other urban explorers are so instinctively drawn to these unknown and sometimes forbidden places - even (and for some, especially) when the stakes are high. Hidden Cities will inspire readers to contemplate the potential for urban exploration available for anyone, anywhere - if they have only the curiosity (and nerve!) to dig below the surface to discover the hidden corners of this world.
