Parks and underpasses around Omaha had surprisingly little sign of people camping out. Throughout the States, in spite of extreme cold, I had witnessed homeless people camping out regardless of the temperature. In Omaha the local authorities prohibited camping on public spaces and when we were there, enforcement had been carried out. YesOmaha's staff knew of this but nonetheless had seen homeless encampments until they were cleared away. Not far from downtown, in the wooded area behind the railway tracks we found this camp area.
