“It is possible to live in airports because they do offer many of the basic amenities needed for survival: food, water, bathrooms and shelter. And while airport operations do not necessarily run 24/7, airport terminals often open very early in the morning and stay open until very late at night. Many of the facilities are so large that those determined to stay – such as the man at O’Hare – can find ways to avoid detection for quite some time.” How some people can end up living at airports for months – even years – at a time. I just figured they were flying United and their flight was delayed. (Cue Gershwin music!)
