There are people living in this structure, hidden in the support beams.

Living anywhere in Manhattan means that you’re going to be paying a lot of money in rent. Almost every part of New York City is expensive. If you were to live near the Manhattan Bridge in Brooklyn, rent would most likely be anywhere between $1,700 and $3,000 a month. For people with low paying or minimum wage jobs, it would be impossible to live in this area.
Unless you’re one of the few that know the Manhattan Bridge’s dark secret.

The bridge is an iconic architectural feature in Brooklyn.

In many  different cities, homeless populations have found clever ways to find shelter and live their lives without shelling out thousands of dollars in rent. However, the people living in Manhattan bridge no longer have a cozy shelter (even if it was best for their safety). Hopefully, these displaced people will find a new place to live.
