This magnificent specimen, the second most repulsive public pay phone yours truly has ever laid eyes upon*, was captured for posterity today on Myrtle Avenue. As you can see some kindly soul has seen fit to clean the receiver. Simple acts of kindness such as this mean a lot.

Millie again: Hunts Point, Bronx

Chris Arnade (who took the above photograph) writes:

Millie was working the streets as usual. The cooler weather allowed her to cover up more. I had noticed she always wore a bandanna around her wrist, but never thought much of it. Michael told me to look underneath.

She has an abscess, almost four inches long, which starts near her wrist, almost going to the bone. An infection that started from shooting up, that grew with picking, and now is feeding on itself. Being homeless is not good for much, but it’s great for infections.

I offered to take her to the hospital, but she declined. She needed to make money to get a fix. Taking time for her health, that’s secondary.
