, like all major industrialized cities has it's history of homelessness and impoverished. Living entangled amongst the waste management corridors in shanty towns of cardboard, scavenged metal and dated refuge are the people that can no longer function within the system of the higher levels. Deposited and hidden away out of shame. Nothing here has lustre and nothing here has any value, this is where things are tossed to rot. Nothing thrives here it only continues because the sewage from above feeds it perpetually...
