Research Video II: NYC drainpipe

Here I am walking up a 4′ diameter drainpipe under New York. This pipe carries stormwater from the area surrounding Highbridge Park down to the Harlem River. Today I’m writing a scene set in this pipe. I love my life. I really enjoyed the exploration, and I hope my beta readers will enjoy my depiction.

The video starts when Steve and I are over 75% up the pipe. Here is a photo of Steve on his way down the pipe.

See the tiny light speck in the photo below? It’s not your monitor. That’s Steve’s headlamp at the bottom of the pipe.

Speck in the middle of the photo is the same headlamp one minute later

Thank you to my wonderful husband for filming. You can see more photos and a video from our trip here.
