I was taking some shots nearby this underpass near a Long Island Expressway exit in Long Island City and this mattress caught my eye. It was a little spooky at first, but I just got captivated with this "home" that someone had put together. There were canned goods, blankets, anything really, that the occupant could use. I only took a few shots because honestly I felt like I was invading someone’s privacy. As sad as this scene was, there is a person out there surviving the best way they can. It’s humbling to see the human spirit persevere against such difficult odds. I hope he or she is okay.
