There are 3,800 employees who currently manage Chernobyl’s restricted Zone. They check their hands and feet for radioactive contamination before the train home, but, relatively, life goes on as normal.  For the 25th Anniversary of the Chernobyl disaster, NYC’s Ukrainian Museum takes you where you really don’t want to go, but these guys do. Gotta feed the kids.
