The young Filipino-American daredevil infamous for getting arrested after scaling 1 World Trade Center in 2014 has done it again. 

New York Police said Justin Casquejo, now 20 years old, was arrested Monday for hanging off a crane on a roof after he broke into an apartment building that is under construction on the Upper West Side last March.

The fearless Fil-Am and two others were seen taking photos and videos, according to a complaint filed by the building management company.

Casquejo is out on a $5,000 bail.

Last year, Casquejo pleaded guilty to trespassing the 1 World Trade Center in 2014 in exchange for three years probation.

In one of his Youtube videos, Casquejo explained why he became an "urban explorer" scaling the sky scrapers of this concrete jungle.

"I haven’t traveled nearly to as many places as I would have liked to, and that desire to travel and being stuck in New York City my entire life is the reason why I explore so much, so I can’t really compare NYC to anywhere else, and that’s the biggest driving factor why I’m out there doing crazy things…" he said in his video.
