West Side Improvements traces the history of the tunnel running under Riverside Park in New York City. Originally created by Robert Moses to conceal freight train tracks, the tunnel was eventually abandoned and became a living space for hundreds of homeless people, as documented in the film Dark Days. While most journalistic attention on the tunnel has focused on the homeless population, West Side Improvements instead focuses on the history of the many works of art lining the walls of the tunnel by graffiti writer Chris "Freedom" Pape.
