This video of a homeless man who built an awesome home for himself under a train station
New York City is one of the most populated and expensive cities in the world to live in. It is the business center of America and one of the top tourist attractions in the world. Unfortunately it also harbors almost 60,000 homeless people living in shelters and more than 3,100 more sleeping on streets. One such homeless person Carlos managed to convert something old into a home for himself and this video of him showing off his new home will surprise you.
1 The man and his home
A homeless man by the name of Carlos tried his hardest to find a place to live in the most expensive city in the world, the New York City. Unfortunately, he spent his days on the street of the city, until he came across a old service manhole underneath busy NYC subway train station. Recently a video emerged of Carlos showing off his new home that he built in a tunnel in the same busy train station in NYC. The tunnel is actually an old service manhole and it was found and shown to him by his friend. Carlos worked hard in order to convert it into a livable facility which has many amenities that he has gathered for himself.
2 What the home has for him?
The old service manhole, which has been converted into a livable house by Carlos, is abundant with lots of everyday amenities, all collected by Carlos himself. The “home” has heat and electricity. The electricity is used to light his house, run a mini fridge, a coffee maker. He cooks his food inside using a gas cooker and the fridge stores all his food and beverages. He did the painting and repairing work himself and says that the noise above the ground from the trains do not bother him anymore. He said “The noise of the train doesn’t bother me, I just close the door and it is fine.” The video was uploaded on YouTube in 2010 and has been circulated in Reddit again, it is not known if Carlos still lives there or not, but one thing for sure, he made a kickass house in that manhole.
