A family arises from the confines of a dark, damp subway station.
"I found a baby," Daniel Stewart said over the phone to his partner, Peter Mercurio. Daniel was in a subway station on Eighth Avenue in Manhattan when he spotted a day-old infant wrapped in a sweatshirt, abandoned behind the turnstiles.

Probably because that makes no sense, but apparently, it’s a thing.
