About the Book
The Port Authority Bus Terminal in New York City is the largest in the nation, the busiest in the world. In the 1970's and 80's it had a reputation as a hub for pimps, prostitutes, runaways, a mecca for the lost, the misfits, the mentally ill, the misbegotten. The last exit for some. The last stop for too many. It is situated just blocks from Times Square, the Great White Way. The area teems with tourists. Today, some forty years later it is less seedy. It is not a hotel or a designated shelter but people live inside this place. For some their economic and social survival is based here. Over 65 million people walk through the doors of thus bus terminal annually. Everyone has a story.
