Explores the underground communities beneath New York City, examining the people that live there, the factors that influenced their decision to move below ground, and the sense of identity individuals find in this alternative world

Independent Publishing Group

Thousands of people live in the subway, railroad, and sewage tunnels that form the bowels of New York City and this book is about them, the so-called mole people. They live alone and in communities, in subway tunnels and below subway platforms and this fascinating study presents how and why people move underground, who they are, and what they have to say about their lives and the ?topside” world they’ve left behind.

Fasinating, frightening, and heartbreaking true-life stories of the homeless and the outcasts of New York City. A brilliant work by author Jennifer Toth. Written some twenty years ago, but still more relevant today as ever.
