6 Local Urban Explorers You Should Be Following On Instagram

Allen isn't really an "urban explorer" but he is a "architectural historian," an author and a lecturer. So naturally he finds himself often tromping through ancient and abandoned structures for clients and for his work for the Preservation Research Office. His online bio says that he researches "the impact of deindustrialization, population loss and postwar urban renewal projects on the preservation of historic urban landscapes." And luckily, through his Instagram, he takes us along for the ride.
