Dark Days, a Full-Length Documentary Following People Living in an Abandoned New York City Tunnel

Filmed in the mid/late 1990s and released in the year 2000, Dark Days is a fascinating documentary that follows several homeless people who lived in the abandoned "Freedom Tunnel" that runs underneath the Upper West Side between 50th and 125th streets. Created by British filmmaker Marc Singer, the film places the viewer within a circle of trust with the underground community, allowing for an in-depth and honest peek at what it is like to be homeless underneath New York City.

Propelled by a soundtrack from DJ Shadow, Dark Days reveals a community that has thrived for years in the abandoned New York City underground.
