Homeless in New York

Streaming Video - 2011
Rate this:
This award-winning program takes an unflinching look at the lives of Bernard and Bobby, two men who live in an abandoned railroad tunnel that extends beneath Manhattan's Riverside Park. Bernard says that he came there for shelter and self-knowledge; for Bobby, having grown up in numerous foster homes, it was just a case of another type of homelessness. In the course of discussing the lives they've chosen and their connections with the world above, they touch upon the surprising lack of violence in their community, the way they find the food and earn the money they need to live, and the camaraderie they share.
