Bedding Down on the Houston Street Viaduct

Gray Kinney tells Unfair Park he was out shooting the debris formerly known as Reunion Arena a few days ago when he stumbled across this scene, which is obscured to drivers by the small retaining wall where S. Houston Street becomes the Houston Street Viaduct over the railroad tracks between the Dallas Convention Center and the former Reunion site. He also found several other homeless encampments "in and around the Reunion Arena parking lot," but this one, he writes, "caught my eye because it is a full-size queen bed with a sheet on it."
