Summary
  • Describes urban exploration, urban adventure, and urban infiltration, activities that involve secretly entering, exploring, and and engaging in other activities--even ironing--in abandoned buildings and other places not open to the public
  • "Leaping from the Eiffel Tower in a wingsuit. Scaling Shanghai Tower, one of the world's tallest buildings. Camping on the roof of Philadelphia's abandoned Eastern State Penitentiary. These scenarios are real examples of explorations, adventures, and infiltrations of the built environment. Thousands of people around the globe engage in the recreational activity of place hacking: climbing, wading, jumping, or even ironing their way into prohibited or obscure spaces. Why do they do it?"--Dust jacket flap
