By the end of the millennium, thousands of homeless people roamed the streets of Manhattan. A small group of them went underground. Invisible to society, they managed to start a new life in the tunnel systems of the city. Acclaimed war photographer Voeten gained unprecedented access to this netherworld, where he lived for five months, meeting Vietnam veterans, macro-biotic hippies, crack addicts, cuban refugees and runaways. 13 years later, Voeten tracks down the original tunnel dwellers - now evicted - to discover what happened since they left the tunnels.

A wealth of experiences, characters, hilarious anecdotes, adventures, and a view of the homeless population who would otherwise remain out of sight. Fascinating, another layer entirely of the story of New York. Also recommend works on this subject by Jennifer Toth (The Mole People) and the documentary by Marc Singer (Dark Days). Shows the lengths people will go to live apart from society, in their own realm, and how fortunate we should regard ourselves for living in the light of day.
