Guy Leaps Into Gowanus from Moving F-Train in Found Footage of 1930 Parkour

This is both incredibly cool, and unbelievably gross: Yesterday someone uploaded footage of an unnamed New Yorker performing amazing prototypic parkour feats in 1930. These daredevil acts include, far as I can tell, hopping onto the back of a Manhattan-bound F as it leaves the 4th Avenue and 9th Street station, climbing onto the roof of the moving train and somersaulting into the Gowanus (sequence begins at :55). Maybe this explains his mutant-like climbing skills...
