It was major news a couple years ago when then-16-year-old Justin Casquejo snuck past security at the not yet opened One World Trade Center and posted a picture of himself after climbing to the top of the tower. Though he got caught and convicted, Casquejo seems unphazed by these legal troubles. The Post uncovered dozens of photos and videos he posted recently to Instagram and YouTube that show him and his friends “dangling from Manhattan skyscrapers,” including the Time Warner Center, 220 Central Park South (where another urban explorer recently made waves), and Coney Island’s Parachute Jump.

After being nabbed for the World Trade Center stunt, Casquejo pled guilty and was sentenced to 30 days of community service and ordered to attend counseling and write a 1,200-word essay. But just two weeks later, he was caught again trying to climb a brick water tower in his hometown of Weehawken, New Jersey. His sentence was then increased to three years probation, partly due to the fact that he tried to run from police, but was terminated early for compliance. As for the new developments, according to the Daily News, “a police spokesman confirmed detectives were investigating the teen.” Check out some more insane shots from Casquejo’s Instagram:
