NYC 1988

This old lady would sleep on the corner of 86th & Broadway, and one night she used her “Red Apple” shopping bag to create a pillow. I have recently seen a new wave of homelessness which rivals the 1980’s, hit New York. This time it’s mostly runaways from other towns who are young, white, and addicted to heroin. It is not an easy time to walk down the street…

Recycler 2016

“Homeless and Fearless” 2015

They woke up a homeless man by kicking the box that he was sleeping in and insulting him, and he grabbed a homemade weapon of some sorts and took after the group.

Then I watched the group back down as they realized their joke had gone too far. The last time I saw one guy stand up to this many guys without displaying fear was in 1979…
