An Illegal Nighttime Journey Up the Queensboro Bridge

New, 8 comments

Just days after he climbed the Triborough Bridge, a defiant urban explorer who goes by the name icarus_nyc on Instagram took a nighttime jaunt up the 350-foot Queensboro Bridge. The anonymous bridge-climbing daredevil was publicly reprimanded by Police Commissioner Bill Bratton, but the young man seemed to have taken Bratton's message as a challenge, not a warning. Animal New York shared photos from his latest escapade, and in one, the climber is holding a note that reads "Dear Commissioner Bratton, No."
