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.
