during the great depression, a small cardboard village on the outskirts of a town, near the railroad tracks, where those who lost money would wait for a train to pass, then hop a boxcar and ride it out west to find a new life. hoovervilles were most common in states like Illinois and Michigan, industrial areas where unemployement was at its worst. they were so named because herbert hoover was president during the stock market crash and is widely blamed for it.
the police officers busted up the hooverville the day after billy hopped a train.

The first car on the subway when riding very late at night. This car is usually filled with hobos, winos, bums and an assortment of riff raff, who flop around and stink up the joint.
Bro1: "Here's the train, let's get on the first car, so we're close to the exit when we get off"

Train: "Toooot, chugga chugga chugga, screeeeeeee pishhhh"

Bro2: "No way bro, it's late at night, I don't want to ride in Hooverville, lets take a middle car, where the biddies at."
