An old trend is resurfacing in New York City that dates back as far as the ’80s, but is now being rediscovered through Instagram, TikTok, and anywhere else where you can go viral.

It’s potentially fatal, carrying such a disregard for safety that it’s difficult to look away. It’s Subway Surfing, a stunt that has found unexpected traction among a daring pocket of New Yorkers, particularly in the borough of Queens.

And no, this isn’t some nostalgic homage. It’s an exploration of why such a risky activity—one that seemingly faded away—is back. Is it just a quick way to go viral? Is it a quest for identity and belonging? Or is it maybe a response to the monotonous bore of the digital age?

Take a look as we attempt to go beyond the cheap thrills and understand why today’s teens in New York City are literally risking it all for Subway Surfing.

    That was an excellent bit of documentary filmmaking. I’d like to see a longer version where you dig deeper into the psychology behind these kids and their decision making process. I’m wondering what the demographics are of the kids surfing the cars and if that speaks to a larger social issue or issues. Good work, Jenkem!

    Once they get creamed on a bridge or signal, get their little buddies to mop and scrape that shit up. Not a pretty sight to see someone covering 100 yards of track.
