This is another old video that I just happened to re-watch tonight about homeless people living on what was then the desolate West Side of Manhattan. Today, this area is on the verge of becoming a bustling destination with the new Hudson Yards development in full swing and the new 7 line extension at 34th Street.
Towards the end of this video, there's a glimpse of a ramp that I realized I've been down many times before -- and until now I never connected that it was the same ramp seen in this short video. Security at this location was pretty laid back then and it still is today. Easy opening for the casual explorer.
