Amazing Look thru Google Glass of a Tent City in Rural America

Posted: Updated:

Carmen Guidi, from Second Wind Cottages, was nice enough to give me a tour of one of this countries most infamous tent cities. Known as The Jungle, this tent community, now almost vacated, is in Ithaca, New York.

As seen through the lens of Google Glass, join us as Carmen shares about the history of the place and some of the people who lived and died here, along with the frustration of working with the system trying to get people badly-needed help.

The video is only 13 minutes long, and if you don't have that much time, you can watch a 2 minute preview clip by clicking here.
