Hong Kong’s dirty little secret
Kristie Hang and Benjamin Gottlieb recently wrote a story for CNN’s website about some members of Hong Kong’s underclass:
Hidden amid the multi-million dollar high-rise apartments and chic shopping malls of Hong Kong’s urban centers are scores of tiny, unseen tenements — some no bigger than coffins — that many people call home.
Mak, 72, has lived in his four-walled “coffin home” overlooking the city’s Wan Chai neighborhood for the past decade. His entire living space is no bigger than a twin-sized bed, and has just enough room for him to sit up.
Hang and Gottlieb produced this video about coffin home inhabitants:
