Just came across this a couple days ago, and I was totally blown away. I couldn’t stop watching – the footage is extremely compelling, and I have been interested in the subject for some time now, ever since I saw another documentary by the name of Dark Days, which incidentally also featured the music of DJ Shadow.
If you’re interested in this stuff, bounce to Andrew Wonder’s site UnderCity, where you can check out more media and even buy prints of some very impressive photographs.
Some words from Andrew Wonder:

Steve and I just completed another underground expedition with Norwegian explorer Erling Kagge (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erling_Kagge). It was featured in a three page article on the front page of the NY Times metro section and was written by Alan Feuer (nytimes.com/2011/01/02/nyregion/02underground.html). We were also covered by NPR’s Jacki Lyden whose report will be aired on 1/2/11 and posted on NPR’s site (npr.org/2011/01/02/132482428/into-the-tunnels-exploring-the-underside-of-nyc).
Shot on a canon 5d mkii with canon 24 f/1.4 (version 1) with the zacuto rapid fire, Zoom H4N and a sennheiser g2 wireless lav. The zacuto was really great at being there when I needed it but also staying out of the way.
