Did you know? The Brooklyn Army Terminal was a scene location shoot for Underground Terror, a low-budget movie shot during the summer of 1988. Look for the "subway scenes." Here's another link to the movie.

The party was conceived and organized by Rat; the location was found by Mik, who also directed and edited the video; Gary's friend Joe shot the roving / ground-level footage; the electricity was wired by Ray and Gary, who also found the lighting -- actual highway overheads. Ian rented the PA and put it together with Gary. Many other people also helped.

The 2-hour video also includes footage of Rat, Ian, Mik, Gunnar, Bonz, Ray, Gary and a few friends cleaning up before the show and generally hanging around and drinking beer.
