Life can be hard living in the cold and damp underground tunnels of the New York Amtrak railway system. You try to survive, make it comfortable and keep the rats at bay. Some have been living down here for five years!

Get on well with the neighbours or one might come along and burn your "house" down. Then there's always the risk of a visit from the armed Amtrak police who may try to evict you.

Still, it's a way of surviving the freezing New York winters and sweltering summers above ground.
