A 17-year-old who scales some of the tallest buildings in Manhattan searching for the perfect Instagram photo was arrested for climbing to the top of 432 Park Avenue, “the in-construction luxury tower expected to top out at 1,398 feet, making it the second-tallest building in the city” according to New York Magazine.
The teen, who goes by @demidism on Instagram, is part of a now-not-so underground group of “Outlaw Instagrammers” which were profiled earlier this summer by Adrian Chen (you can see a slideshow of photos here on Business Insider.)
The Instagrammers, mostly young teens, scale buildings and bridges illegally in hopes of capturing a photo that will trump those taken by their peers.
NBC New York reports that the 17-year-old has been “charged with trespassing and reckless endangerment for scaling the midtown building.”
The photo @demidism took remains on his Instagram account with the caption, “I went to heaven and back.”
