Billboard With a View: Climb to the Only Spot in Times Square Safe From Tourists

Our friends at Animal recently published a stellar first-person view of an urban explorer climbing to the top of a Times Square billboard and snapping some great photos of the chaos below.

After giving the world a look inside the world’s largest Tiffany’s clock and an unauthorized view of Grand Central Terminal, the NYC-based urban explorer who goes by the villainous-sounding Instagram handle Dark Cyanide shows us what it’s like to visit the only part of Times Square that’s worth checking out. The self-professed “thrill seeker and photographer” climbed to the top of the massive billboard on 47th Street between Broadway and 7th Avenue. It sits high above the iconic TKTS steps.

Check the full post for more on the climb and to see the photos taken while there.
