Bearded Hipsters' Urban Exploring Foiled by Vigilant Harlem Resident

Bearded Hipsters' Urban Exploring Foiled by Vigilant Harlem Resident

Quick—you see four dudes with healthy beards and plaid shirts darting suspiciously into the tunnel near 112th Street, the site of the 2nd Avenue Subway, which isn't in service; what do you do? If you're Harlem resident Jerry Jackson, you call 5-0.

The four dudes, who professed to be "urban explorers," were arrested with Roman candles and cameras in their possession. All of this makes a certain amount of sense: fireworks sparking bright colors inside a dark tunnel while you photograph your friends, knowing the sweet photographs will definitely be listed as Dos in next month's Vice. Sure. But then things take a turn for the bat-shit.

"Just because we got bin Laden doesn't mean it's over," Jackson told the New York Post. And our bafflement meter just exploded.
