If you really love learning about NYC's secret tunnels and abandoned locations, you're in the right place.

I'm Joe, LTV Squad founder & primary writer & researcher. As some of you already know, we are NYC's longest running urban exploration group. Active since the late 1980s and pioneers in the field, if you will.

My website, ltvsquad.com, has been online since 2001. It is filled with well researched articles that dive deep into NYC's history. There are photo essays showing spaces under NYC that you won't see anywhere else. Researching and writing everything on the site takes a whole lot of time. On average, a properly researched article takes about four hours to write - and that of course does not include the time spent going out and photographing all these locations. Sometimes a really great location can take up to ten hours to research, assuming it has a rich enough history. For examples, check out my exploration of NYC's legendary 5ptz graffiti mecca, or the nearby CN West chemical factory.

The time spent researching and writing is a large hidden cost. It's my hope those who enjoy this type of content will support it through Patreon. To be clear, I'm going to keep writing, researching and exploring for a very long time - but having financial support to do so would definitely help take it to the next level. It will allow for more time to create this awesome content, expand into video content, and do it all with a renewed level of regularity.

Becoming a patron also comes with as many benefits as I can provide - including discounts on LTV Press books (sold in the online store), and personalized tours. There will be some great members-only content coming as well. As I get this up and running, other rewards will be rolled out.

This is a basic starter goal - for covering the cost of maintaining the website and time to research & write at least one article per month.  When this goal is reached, we'll do something awesome. TBD - and open to suggestions!
