Man Casually Slips Through A Grate Into The NYC Sewers, And It's NBD

By Jonna Ivin-Patton

In a sad commentary on the state of wealth inequity in the United States, a man who appeared to be homeless was captured on video slipping through the grates in the streets of New York City. 

In 1990 filmmaker Mark Singer made a documentary, Dark Days, about the community of homeless people living underneath the city. They are often referred to derogatorily as "mole people," but in reality we have a crisis in the U.S. of addiction, mental illness, and poverty.

The video shows a man slipping easily through the open grate and disappearing to the ground below.
