For instance, homeless arrive at Atlanta’s Hartsfield Airport on the last subway trains of the evening, which almost ensures they can't be forced to leave until the trains start running again in the morning. Throughout the night they often blend in with stranded fliers, a shoeless foot or tattered clothes some of the only signs they're not ordinary travelers. Some roam the terminal. Others find a comfy resting spot among business types and families sitting in the atrium.
All of them frequent the eating areas and bathrooms. The airport setting is ideal: A 24-hour public setting with food and water, where nobody looks twice if you snooze for hours.
In Atlanta, a police sweep will take the homeless to the train station, or either take them on the other side to wait for the train to come, but one night-shift janitorial worker said. "The next morning, they come right back."
