Reports show there is a modern-day record number of homeless families in New York City. According to Coalition for the Homeless, city data shows as of October of '09, there are over 39,000 homeless New Yorkers in the shelter system each night—including more than 16,500 children from 10,000 homeless families. A reported 42% rise from when Mayor Bloomberg took office, not including people sleeping on the street, itself a seemingly sizable number.
One of these children have a solution: "How? Get rid of corrupt landlords and stop gentrification. No more luxury condos!!! Word."
