I just finished reading John Saul’s novel, The Manhattan Hunt Club in which the action takes place in the tunnels underneath Manhattan.
In his author’s note, Saul asserts that many of the people who choose to live in the tunnels are actually “… productive members of society, holding jobs and attending school, giving false addresses to whatever bureaucracies they come in contact with.”
Is such a thing possible in the wake of 9/11 when those same bureaucracies are supposedly keeping a closer eye on people than ever before?
I know we have many New Yorkers in our MB. Would any of you care to comment on the accuracy of Mr. Saul’s statements?
