Culture on the Cheap
New York Shitty Day Ender: Al Fresco Living

Given the recent
cognitive dissonance “controversy” over the so-called “shelter” on Milton Street, I felt a reminder of what the alternative has long been for Greenpoint’s homeless community was in order. Granted, this living room suite is located in East Williamsburg (if one cares/dares to tread further east there he/she will find a homeless colony), but you get the idea.
This post is dedicated to Ann and Jen of the Greenpoint Reformed Church and the manifold number of people— and there were/are many— who worked to ensure that ten of our neediest will have a safe, warm place to sleep on this cold winter night. Thank you!
