New York City’s weekend downpour was reportedly the catalyst for the emergence of a Times Square homeless encampment. According to the New York Post, “More than a half-dozen homeless people hung up their wet clothing to dry on a metal rail of the scaffolding that surrounds 1441 Broadway while they huddled underneath some blankets in a series of ‘rooms’ built from cardboard boxes.”
The news sources reports that the homeless encampment drew stares from tourists who noted that New York City’s homeless problem seems to be getting increasingly worse.
The New York Police Department reportedly took apart the homeless encampment the same day it was erected.
With the emergence of the season of harsh weather in New York City, the already burdensome condition of homelessness is about to be even more hard on those who have no stable place to live. Please do what you can to help alleviate the burdens of those who may be less fortunate.
Lots of Love,
