HOMELESS rate is up in NYC

Manhattan’s Homeless rate is up 7%, but on the Westside where I live…..it is up 14%.  56,000 are sleeping in homeless shelters….and thousands more are sleeping in the streets…….in the parks…….in the subways and on church steps all over town.

It is heartbreaking.

More than 1000 children are living with their families in these shelters……….this is a tragedy.  Many of these families have been evicted from their apartments unable to pay the rents that landlords are charging.   A studio apartment in Manhattan can cost between $3000 to $4000 a month.
