Who knew the streets of NYC would be so crowded with homeless that other homeless are saying they feel crowded.

The city should pay able bodied/minded homeless people to clean the sidewalks. The sidewalks are filthy (mainly due to dog owners allowing their dogs to urinate and defecate on the sidewalks) and could use daily cleaning. This would certainly improve everyone's quality of life and allow the homeless to make some money for basic necessities.

Imagine being able to walk down the sidewalk enjoying the views, without having to constantly look down to avoid stepping in crap.

The program could be funded by increasing the NYC dog license fee (which owners are required to renew annually). The beauty of this is that the people responsible for creating the mess are required to pay for cleaning it up.

You know what I found so funny about this article from the NY Post....is that if the reporter actually did a quick internet search and also searched the papers own archive they would have noticed that the two brothers they cited in this article were maybe not the best people to actually speak with. It seems they have been squatting and/or homeless since at least 1986. (age 22), were involved in a bizarre train incident in 2004 (age 40) and are STILL living on the street in 2017 (age 53).

Something isn't Kosher my friends. Either the "system" has failed these guys which means its a bigger news story or.....they are career homeless and benefit receivers. Are they not able bodied men? The media and the politicians would have us think that the crisis is so terrible when in fact certain individuals need to do something for themselves too! And this is why the shelter system and benefits programs need an overhaul. SMH

FALSE!!!!!!!!!!! Maybe in ****ty neighborhoods where people don't pick up their dogs crap, but in those neighborhoods there's more human trash and detritus than dog turds by a mile. You're just a dog hater.

I detest this term. Are there not also "able bodied women" who also choose to be hobettes?
