...Few New Yorkers live, love, or work at ground level. ... in bad weather [they] stay below. ... The cave men live down there,...Once you "go under" it's best to stay under ... At night, when your dozing by your warm wall you stuff [your cash] in your crotch.

All day yesterday you tried to remember your name. You looked in your wallet and there was no name. ... It's easy to forget who you are when there's no name in your wallet.


Wow...Harry, this is so good. You make me want to write again.

This really isn’t a short story. They’re notes I put together quite a few years ago. I formatted them up and sent them in. Maybe they’re worth another looksee.

Please do, Harry...I've never thought of New York in that fashion..oh, I've seen the futuristic movies...but, for some reason...it simply hasn't registered that they are there today...in Houston, while we don't have the underground subways, we have them living under the freeways...even here locally...I've spoken with some while working part-time with the census bureau....But, Harry, you've captured the mentality. I feel this is an important piece of non-fiction. I want to see all that you write...
