Watch an Urban Explorer Scale a Massive Times Square Billboard

A bird's eye view of NYC's most famous locale.

We regularly avoid walking through Times Square, but having the skill set of urban explorer dark.cyanide might make it worth our while. The Instagrammer who once took us inside Grand Central Station's Chelsea clock has now taken on the mother of all tourist destinations by scaling the 47th Street billboard, offering a bird's-eye-view of the TKTS booth and the famous Times Square McDonald's. The sky walker told Animal New York that he had to leave his backpack at one point along the climb because his hidden route was so cramped. He also had to make the climb late at night to avoid prying eyes.


Below, follow his heart-racing journey to the top:
