The number of people sleeping in New York City’s municipal shelter system has passed the 50,000 mark for the first time, according to a new report, State of the Homeless 2013, issued by the Coalition for the Homeless this week.New York City homeless population reaches Great Depression levels - World Socialist Web Site

It rather strange since New York City is supposed to be the financial capital of the world.

The media only emphasizes stories on the homeless during republican administrations. One is left with the impression that all of "the homeless" live in Cape Cod homes during democratic admins, then are promptly thrown out as soon as a democratic POTUS leaves office.

Our press is an embarrassing propaganda unit.
