According to the Coalition for the Homeless, an New York City-based homeless advocacy group, there are more homeless people spending their nights in city shelters than any time since at least the Great Depression. In total, almost 60,000 people stay in city shelters each night. As for the city’s unsheltered population, there’s no accurate estimate available, but we know that it ranges in the thousands.
Meanwhile, New York City’s biggest police union, the Sergeants Benevolent Association, is taking cues from a letter sent to its members by president Ed Mullins on Monday. In the letter, Mullins encourages members to photograph “the homeless lying in our streets, aggressive panhandlers, people urinating in public or engaging in open-air drug activity, and quality-of-life offenses of every type.” The photos, which are already coming in, are being uploaded onto the association’s Flickr account.
