NYT: The Sunless World of Immigrants in Queens

basement by Dong Jun

Check out this NYT project Underground Lives: The Sunless World of Immigrants in Queens. It includes photography, maps, short videos and stories. It's visually stunning, moving, and informative.

You'll learn about the husband and wife living underground in order to support their daughter going to college, the husband living alone to support a family in Mexico, a grandmother trading darkness for the proximity to her grandchildren.

The piece offers unique insight into just what an individual will give up in order to survive in the high-priced NYC housing market.
