Triumph: Ambivalence: I'm sure there are plenty of social workers who are askingI didn't watch Bloomberg's press conference. Was the issue addressed at all, or was it just questions about the Marathon?
skantea: First thing I thought of when I saw the pictures of the flooded subways. I've seen a number of documentaries about the tunnel dwellers (not all are drug addicts - some are just beaten down by tragic events). They build really elaborate houses down there.We'll be hearing some pretty horrific stories about them soon I'm guessing.

furiousxgeorge: Can we be frank for a second? Nobody was asking about them every sub-freezing day of every New York winter for the past forever. If we want to think about them, we need to think of crazy things like long term welfare and psychiatric or drug treatment and housing with no questions asked.
sidcart42: Hey Farkers,Never trust an article written in this style. The 1920's avenging whistleblower is a sure sign of someone who has very few facts.It is estimated that there are thousands of people who live in this subterranean world, where they have established cities that live off of the electricity, scavenge the excess of a city that is decadent in its wastefulness, raise children and tend to pets, live and love, and make a civilization  where they are the mayors, citizens, doctors, and police.Look at how many poetic details the author latched onto the word "estimated." This is the shiat bad parodies of hack writers write on HBO shows. The prose launches secondhand sociological critiques at a situation that by definition is unknowable to the writer in any form whatsoever. Doesn't know the people, hasn't met them before or after the storm, has no information about their whereabouts. Yet the author has a lot of important things to say about it.Yes, there are some people who live down there. People who likely understand the systems in place better than most, from every other rainstorm they've endured. It might be interesting to see what trials they faced and how they managed and what they lost. Like any story from the storm describing the way humans adapt to natural disasters.But this article is complete farking bullshiat. There's not a single fact in play. Not a source beyond, "hey, don't people live down there? I saw a thing on tv one time.....or was that China? Whatever."

Haliburton Cummings: the transformers for the subway and other infrastructure create ambient heat as well as the...wait for it...steam vents that run through the city....
ThatDarkFellow: I care the same amount as I did about the idiots anywhere else that wouldn't leave when there is an evacuation due to extreme weather that will probably kill you if you decide to stay.
Huck And Molly Ziegler: Not to be gruesome, but wouldn't we by now already have seen news reports of dozens of bodies found floating or wedged in tight spaces?
Mikey1969: Haliburton Cummings: the transformers for the subway and other infrastructure create ambient heat as well as the...wait for it...steam vents that run through the city....I've seen pictures of these, but I've always wondered just what they heat, and if it's really cost effective, especially how many vents you see blowing off steam, so to speak.On a different note, are these setups anywhere near as elaborate as the people who live under Vegas have their digs set up?
sidcart42: Tigers exist. But wondering aloud whether they were partially responsible for 9/11 is not journalism.
Haliburton Cummings: sidcart42: WHHAAARRRGGGBBLLLEEEyou know, if the internet infuriates you so much, you should read more books..welcome to fark.you sound like Ted Kasinsky, and coming from me, thats rich./sandy vagina//butthurt//.your little pony
Triumph: sidcart42: Tigers exist. But wondering aloud whether they were partially responsible for 9/11 is not journalism.What a perfect analogy!
