The Tunnel Dwellers Of New York
Beneath New York’s skyscrapers are 18 levels of tunnels and 468 open or abandoned subway stations. Three decades ago, many homeless Vietnam-era veterans homesteaded this urban wilderness. However, after the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, city officials became less tolerant of the tunnel dwellers and most were forced to abandon their underground abodes. Documentary filmmaker Chantal Lasbats travels through narrow portals into a maze of corridors and passageways to meet a few hardy denizens of this hidden world who continue to live there.
