The 'Coffin Homes' of Hong Kong

The Atlantic Logo By Alan Taylor of The Atlantic | Slide 1 of 17: Wong Tat-ming, 63, sits in his "coffin home" which is next to a set of grimy toilets in Hong Kong as he pays HK$2,400 ($310) a month for a compartment measuring three feet by six feet, on March 28, 2017. It is crammed with all his meager possessions, including a sleeping bag, small color TV and electric fan.
